New voices - Brian Saxton
challenged us to find new voices
. Between now and February 17 I am profiling
eight nine bloggers that I've found informative and intriguing. Most represent a leadership perspective and are relatively unknown.
All are thinking in deep and interesting ways and thus deserve to be
brought closer to the surface of the blogosphere.
Today's new voice: Brian Saxton, Snacks and Staff Meetings
Brian is the assistant principal at Aptos Junior High School in Aptos,
California. Brian was a physical education teacher before he was an administrator.
One of the things I like about Brian's blog is that he writes about the
day-to-day realities of being a school leader. He hasn't been blogging long, so there's not much in his archives yet, but he's off to a good beginning.
Here are a few posts to get you
