This book identifies the actual issues school leaders face in connecting with, building trust with, and truly working WITH teachers. Erika's lengthy and diverse experience as a classroom teacher shines through with the practical advice and simple things we should all do that make a huge difference!
Erika Garcia-Niles does a phenomenal job of breaking down how to build relationships with faculty and work with them as an administrator. With the incredible teacher shortage we are currently facing, it is amazing to see such great work being done on the part of administrators to work on retaining the teachers already in the field. Erika gives pragmatic strategies for educational leaders to follow. This is a book that an emerging leader could pick up and easily read quickly and have a wonderful sense of how to make lasting, meaningful relationships with their staff and faculty. I highly suggest this book for administrators, teachers, instructional coaches, or anyone in education.
