It all starts with a question
As an administrator, my professional development/learning goals are driven by asking - what can I do to make our school the BEST learning environment for our students and teachers?
Practice what you preach
It has always been my philosophy as an administrator to lead by example, and not ask teachers or students to do anything I have not done, or am willing to do. One of my goals as an administrator has been to always maintain a presence in the classroom as a teacher/learner and not forget where I came from!
I have attempted to do this through having our new teachers evaluate my teaching (Supporting New Teachers), visiting classrooms (Hunger Games, What I learned from Kids Today) and becoming a student for a day (Back to School).
