I sit down with new AP, Aisha Santos, to discuss the transition from the classroom to the Admin Office.  She shares her 'origin story' that has led her from a volunteer in her child's school to an Assistant Principal of a southern town high school. Our conversation tackles all kinds of new things that a new AP may face... from the mountain of emails, and discipline to the need to make sure you take some self-care, as well aa connecting with your peers and mentors.
