Do you have the desire to build relationships with the special education teachers in your school or district but constantly feel weighed down by compliance issues? Special education teachers are leaving the field at alarming rates, and positive change through transformational leadership practices can help administrators build confidence and self-efficacy as leaders of special education programs and strengthen special education teachers’ commitment to remain in the field.

In a book that guides an affective journey using John C. Maxwell’s teachings, Natasha Veale, a former special education teacher, professor of special education, and certified Maxwell Leadership consultant, demonstrates how to address administrators’ belief in their ability to become influential special education leaders and connect with their special education teachers, even without a background in special education. This book is ideal for pre-service and in-service assistant principals and principals, special education administrators, and general and special education teachers. Embedded school administrators’ anecdotes reveal experiences, challenges, and desires to build an emotionally supportive environment for their special education teachers. Practical advice and tips are offered to help administrators positively influence, individually consider, intellectually stimulate, and inspirationally motivate their special education teachers.

In How to Retain Special Education Teachers: A Guide for Transformational Leadership for School Administrators, you learn how to:

  • Support special education teacher workload
  • Build self-efficacy as a leader of special education
  • Build relationships with special education teachers
  • Gain district-related support
This is a critically important book that should be read by every school administrator and by every College of Education faculty member involved in any area of special education.

Perfect for courses such as: Principal Leadership for Special Education; Special Education Administration; Educational Leadership; Developing Teachers; Strategic Human Capital Leadership; Leading Change in Education; and Foundations in Education
