I was recently honored to have the opportunity to speak with veteran educator Jeffrey Benson. In the first half of this two-part interview, Mr. Benson discusses his expertise with regard to special education and his new book Hanging In: Strategies for Teaching the Students Who Challenge Us Most. He also provides advice for newer administrators.
Stay tuned for the follow-up episode in two weeks in which Jeffrey talks about his thoughts regarding mentorship, educational technology, and his consulting work. He also provides book recommendations for other educational leaders.
The show notes for this episode can be found here. To check out Jeffrey's book, click the image below.

In the first episode of Principally Speaking, I provide some background on myself as well as a vision for the podcast. Then, I interview Matthew Toth, current assistant principal and incumbent head principal at DeKalb High School in Waterloo, IN. Matt discusses what he feels are the qualities of a strong administrator, how he feels education will change in the future, and recommendations for new administrators.
