Teacher Leaders

Posted: July 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

As we are about to start another school year, I have been highly encouraged by a group of teachers from my campus.  They have been highly committed to learning and growing this summer and have come to me on numerous occasions to talk about what they want to do and what they don’t want to do for this upcoming school year.  Their main focus this summer, collectively, has been to work on teacher-led professional development for our campus.  They want to learn from each other.  They want to learn from other teachers.  This is what we, as principals, strive for  … teachers wanting to learn more so their students can learn more!   Teacher Leaders!

Everybody is different, and sometimes it is hard to deal with different personalities.  Just as these teacher leaders have very different personalities, the students they will all work with will have different personalities.  Even more than the subject that each teacher will teach this year, they will teach collaboration.  These teacher leaders will model collaboration.  Will it be easy?  Sometimes, but not always.  Will it be hard?  Sometimes, but not always.  Will it be fun?  Sometimes, but not always.  Is it good for the students?  Yes!  That’s what it’s all about!.

Teacher Leaders!
