Two professional educators, Dr. Marilou Ryder and Dr. Tamerin Capellino have served in all leadership roles - assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent.  In their new publication,  92 Tips from the Trenches they share personal and up close tips and stories to help you survive and thrive as an educational leader.There are thousands of books written to help people excel at their jobs once promoted. There are few books, if any, that focus on aspects of  leadership that can chip away at your career, cause you to lose your job or worse yet, make you lose your will to lead.  This book aims to make your journey a little easier by offering some effective tools and “Insider Tips” to Stay in the Game!  As co-authors they have both worked in the trenches, walked in your shoes and know that is fairly easy to trip up at the educational leadership line.  And sometimes, it’s the small things that you may not even be aware of,  or soft skills not taught in your administration courses, that go unmentioned in leadership circles.
