Education World Book Review - September 25, 2014
Bonilla believes that “team building and relationships form the foundation for what will bring about student achievement and teacher effectiveness.” The author spends the rest of the book explaining how to achieve that vision. Avoiding jargon and abstract theoretical frameworks, he simply focuses on what works. Even better, Bonilla’s strategies involve little, if any, cost.

For ten years I’ve had the personal and professional gratification of closely and enthusiastically observing Dr. Allan Bonilla “walk the talk” and “be in the principal’s seat” at Palm Springs Middle School in Miami. As his consultant on instruction, curriculum, and student learning, I found that his leadership engendered one of the most exciting and productive learning communities I’ve encountered as a consultant, teacher, leader, and professor. I’m in the Principal’s Seat, Now What? is a “must” resource for every serious school leader!

The theme of visibility presented has already challenged my thinking and provoked reflection on my current and previous practice. It has helped me to see gaps and holes that may have been there. This text would support my work with principals in helping them to see these as key traits/practices.
