Lead Like A Pirate is meaningful to me because it allows the opportunity to see what can be possible in a school, rather than what it has always been; to see new paths to moving a school forward, rather than the traditional, tried-but-not-necessarily-true ways of principal work; and how to truly work with teachers as a supporter, rather than just a director or manager. Shelley and Beth have created a tool that is just as useful for a veteran principal as a first-time administrator, and their ideas for collaborative conversations with teachers will give any veteran administrator an ANCHOR for their work with any teacher in their building, at any level.
I was fortunate enough to be exposed to the Lead Like A Pirate concept when I saw Shelley and Beth present for the first time together, and it was immediately clear that they would be part of my tribe. This book is a great resource for any principal, and it will be something that I come back to again and again as I continue to strive to make my school a place where students, staff, and parents are beating down the doors to get in, not out!
"Culture first, Culture next, and Culture always". C'mon matey walk the plank with us, I promise, you will be a swimmer in no time!
