Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with innovative support systems and new technologies. This method saves time and money and improves learners’ retention. But students are only half of the equation.

 

===> When teachers receive personalized professional development, everybody wins. <===

 

Like their students, teachers have unique strengths and needs. And when a tool can specifically cater to those needs, it empowers teachers to flex their educational muscles.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

A lot has been said about the leader as “servant”. I expect, given that it is a relatively young term (having been ‘born’ in 1970), it is also subject to wide interpretation. As such, while some people will experience great results from their efforts to serve, others will consider it a fad that will go away if they ignore it. Still others will make every effort to embrace the notion of the Servant Leader but find themselves exhausted, confused and possibly resentful because people seem to be walking all over them.

So what to do?

(From the article): Feedback serves the purpose of enabling another to know where we stand and how they can grow.  After that, it’s up to them if they choose to listen, act or react.  Be a leader who gives others your best by giving feedback with heart and in service of them being and doing their very best.

What support does your district provide for new teachers? According to this article, it is critical.

From the text:

"Headden said a teacher in the first few years of his or her career is facing more pressure than previous generations of teachers because of higher stakes testing that have real consequences if students don’t perform well.

But Headden said the support to comfort a teacher through that stressful first year and provide effective teaching techniques and strategies doesn’t exist in most school districts."
