Teachers deserve a work environment that allows autonomy, individuality, innovation, and opportunities to take risk. But, I will not think for you. In this environment, teachers must be able to work independently, collaborate with others, access resources, think outside-the-box, and still be held accountable.
As always, my role as a school administrator is also “lead learner,” “lead teacher,” or “chief learning officer.” That’s not just a statement. I’m here to facilitate, coach, guide, lead, help, assist, and empower. I’m here to collaboratively work with you through an entire project, from start to finish.
I definitely don’t want to hold you back, stifle your thinking, destroy your motivation, contain your creativity, negatively judge your approaches, and/or tell you that you’re always wrong. I believe in you, personally and professionally. And I can’t wait to see the amazing things you can create, implement, and produce when given this level of autonomy and free-will.
