From an elementary school principal and popular YouTube personality, inspiration and humor for educators to tackle the challenges they face day-in and day-outGerry Brooks is an elementary school principal turned YouTube celebrity, and the creator of YouTube videos such as "First Week of School Stress" (over 1.6 million views and counting). He tells jokes with the kind of mocking—yet folksy and good-natured—humor that gets a laugh from teachers and administrators (yet can be safely shared in school). Served up with a dash of humor and a healthy dose of wisdom, Go See the Principal expands on the author's viral video fame and offers comic relief and inspiration to educators. Ranging from practical topics like social media use in the classroom to parent-teacher conferences to more humorous sections such as "Ten Ways to Spot a Teacher in Public" and "Seven Gift Ideas for Your Teacher's Birthday," Go See the Principal is both the comic relief and practical advice all educators need. Brooks also shares suggestions, ideas, and declarations commonly heard in and around the classroom—as well as illustrations, both from students and inspired by them.
