A journal of what I am learning
I am excited to be part of Leadership20
I am networking with a group of amazing and aspiring school administrators who are learning together what it takes to EXCEL at the leaderships skills necessary to be a great Principal/Leader.
One of the things that I firmly believe and was reiterated in our beginning session is the power and importance of the relationship. I value this very much in my role at Bon Accord Community School. Our school has been working hard to improve its ability to communicate and listen to stakeholders. We have used our Facebook Page, and our PowerSchool Parent Portal in addition to traditional methods like our newsletter to let parents and other community members know what we are doing.
Our Leader in Me program has as a major component the community connection aspect. Leader in Me is one of the programs that really defines us, but I do feel that there is a component missing where schools that are working together can readily and frequently connect with each other in a meaningful and exciting way.
Leadership20 – In the last decade teaching has moved outside of the classroom to allow for collaboration and synergy. I think the same thing is beginning to happen with administrators. We have so much to learn and the opportunity to learn from others is vital. One of the greatest things that can happen is if we also learn HOW TO LEARN from each other!!
