Teaching is about a calling which is full of wonder and awe. That being said, teachers cannot do what they are told all the time. They need to get out on the edge. What I experienced with School managers is they did not like that. They wanted serfs who did what they were told and answered dutifully.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, February 17, 2015 10:52 AM

Our teachers are overwhelmed with directives from building and district administrators, as well as the state and federal government.  Held to high levels of accountability for students passing a standardized test, it is no wonder many comply to survive.  

 

As a building administrator, I struggled to integrate the myriad of mandates into a  streamlined package that would enable teachers to meet the "firehose" of requirements from  all the different agencies.  

 

Our teachers need time to collaborate with others and to reflect on their practice.  They deserve timely, positive feedback and opportunities to grow professionally.  

 

Perhaps the best teachers do not do what they are told....and the best administrators help teachers to discriminate and choose how they can meet the mandates and maintain their professional expertise on what works for  the students in THEIR classroom.

I’m both in awe and encouraged at the current trend of teacher-led professional learning occurring across our country. Our nations’ teachers are taking control of their own learning and are using a wide variety of social media platforms to do so.

Teachers are the lead learners in classrooms. This is compatible with servant-leadership which is about being first among equals. That is actually a fluid process.

  • Does the company value ethical behavior over short-term business? If it’s the last day of the sales month, and the numbers look miserable, are people encouraged to do what’s best for the client or close the sale––even if it may jeopardize the long-term relationship with the client?

I chose this article because it explores ways to mitigate adversity and nourish personal stregnth such as:

*developing caring relationships

*setting high expectations

*creating opportunities to participatate and contribute

This supports the importance of developing "soft skills" in leaders to help them become effective.

I chose this article because it delves into ways to mitigate adversity and develop personal strength.

 

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:31 PM

Resilience is believing in what you do and even when it gets so hard and you feel so defeated, you just don’t give up. It is believing that you can rise above and achieve something in the face of disaster, disappointment and struggle. Resilience is needed in education or you will not survive. Each day you spend in school building, you carry the hopes and dreams of your students. You also carry their tragedies and trauma. Why do we do this every day over and over again? Because we are believers. We are resilient and we know we hold the potential to change lives and promote success in all of our students.
