Looking Ahead

Consider some reflective prompts for leaders that may help you frame your leadership goals for next year:

Do the programs and practices in the school actually reflect our school’s stated vision?

How might I better communicate to teachers that their issues or concerns are being heard and addressed?

How might I refocus my attention from managerial tasks in order prioritize classroom observations and teacher evaluations?

When I have evidence that a teacher’s practice is harmful to students, what are my ethical obligations to the teacher and to the students?
