During my 35 year professional career, Angela Michele Tilghman taught early childhood education students as well as adults in college coursework. I’ve worked as an early childhood coach, administrative intern, assistant principal, principal coach, and elementary principal, all in the D.C. metropolitan area. During my tenure, I’ve received many accolades and awards. Some of these included: National Distinguished Principal, National Association of Elementary School Principals, and The Washington Post Distinguished Educational Leader.
Now as a retired educator, I reflect on the many days and hours spent working with students, parents, teachers, community members, union leaders, and volunteers. I can only imagine the challenges principals now face with the Presidency after President Barack Obama. In this book, you will read of possible conversations a principal might have in the schoolhouse during the current administration. These are conversations that children might have at home, too.
