In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Fiarman will host a virtual book talk on topics raised in her book Becoming a School Principal which describes her first few years as a school principal committed to enacting a powerful vision of leading and learning. Drawing thoughtfully on the literature of school reform and change leadership, Dr. Fiarman will discuss a wide range of topics, including empowering teachers, building trust, addressing racial and economic inequities, and supporting a culture of continuous learning, as well as thornier issues such as learning to use authority skillfully, dealing with resistance, and managing supervision and evaluation. The webinar will address common challenges, and will highlight missteps as well as successes.
