5301 Week 2 Reflection
In my week 2 reading from "The Passions That Drive Your Journey"
I learned I will be in charge of my own growth and development as a leader of educators. As a principal I will also be given the responsibility of facilitating the learning and professional growth of the teachers in my school.
Because of the current pressures on teachers these days with high-stakes testing, local, state, and national mandates, as well as keeping up with individual student needs, teachers are leaving the profession in waves. So it is very important that we as principals keep the growth and careers of our teachers alive and growing. I also learned that prinicipals who keep teachers on their toes and energized keep the learning vibrant and more exciting for the students.
