Building Influence for the School Librarian

Front Cover
Linworth Pub., 1994 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 184 pages
Strong librarians are essential to all current educational reform efforts. This book helps librarians identify and take the actions necessary to gain power, not as an end in itself, but so that their schools reach the highest level of academic achievement. Through self-assessment exercises and discussions of a school's culture, the reader is led to new awareness of the attributes of influential people, and then to constructive, realistic ways to influence students, teachers, and community members. [A former administrator himself, the author emphasizes the importance of a strong relationship with the principal.]

I haven't read the book, but the idea of Gary Hartzell teaching people how to interact with kids flips my stomach. I attended high school at Mira Costa under his administration. He was cruel. He was the enemy. He threatened so many of us with expulsion. He may or may not be a good man, but he was a tyrant of an adiministrator.
