I have been lucky to call Joe Sanfelippo and Tony Sinanis friends for a few years now. I have watched as they have taken their amazing ideas from theirs schools and districts and amplified them into the world. I have seen how their words and through leading by example have helped others become more human in their leadership, more adept at navigating what it means to be a leader for all, and not just some.

What a perfect educational system we would have if all leaders used these hacks! I can see this is not an overnight process, but it's written in such a way that the suggestions can be followed by many schools. Unfortunately, some of the suggestions would need rewiring to be possible in small rural communities. Still highly recommend, because the mindset can be contagious.
I'll repeat myself, a MUST read for EVERY school leader.
A quick read that reignited a bit of my passion for teaching and leading!
This was such a practical read! Literally every chapter I was taking down an idea for an application and then sending it to a colleague. Joe and Tony offer a real-world reflection along with clear ideas for upping your game as a leader. Everyone who wants to improve their site for kids should read this book.
