I have learned this year how to take a step back and allow others to take on tasks, managing without being a micro-manager. This tactic has helped our entire LD team to really grow in their own leadership styles and skills and has taught me how to be someone they feel they can trust and rely on for support when it’s needed.

After each observation, we would debrief and identify glows and grows. Being a learner helped me to become a better leader with teachers.

He is not an administrator that is satisfied with the status quo. He has shown that he will be a change agent in making the school a safer place for students to learn and develop lasting relationships.
- Gary, Lead Coach
“Teachers really appreciated administrator presence in their classroom, not just in an evaluatory capacity…” My candidate “...grew this year by demonstrating she is interested in knowing her teachers and students. This support led to increased trust in relationships, which spilled out into all aspects of her work with her school community.”
- Stacey, Lead Coach
I regularly examine my performance, considering how my actions affect others and influence progress toward the goal of learning for all students. I also have coached staff to examine and address personal and institutional biases that are barriers to student learning.
- Jennie, Class of 2018
My candidate “has been very reflective in her work, both in written and in our verbal conversations. She is open, honest about challenges and successes, and always adjusting and thinking about ways to make her ideas and more importantly, classroom instruction, better and more focused on student needs and success.”
