Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I found the teacher-principal gap was a product of a lack of understanding about professional learning. Teachers want something that helps them in their day-to-day work. I experienced principals wanted something that was efficient and they could do at a whim.

Effective professional learning is a conversation that occurs identifying particular needs and not those imposed on teachers.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Servant-leadership is challenging. The infographic poses questions around the original 10 themes based on Robert Greenleaf's work. Teaching, by its nature, should lend itself to each of the themes.

A nice chart and reminder that as leaders, particularly school leaders, we serve others.
