Welcome back to TXTS 4 Leaders, brief school leadership tips sent each week. We hope you share our sense of renewal and optimism for the upcoming school year.
This May’s Educational Leadership issue was focused on supporting school leaders. Baruti Kafele’s article, “Is your school better because you lead it?” prompts leaders to reflect on this question and consider if your staff would answer similarly. What evidence do you have?
He provides examples about how reflecting on these questions can help you identify your leadership identity, your purpose for walking into work each day, and your vision for leadership.
This clarity of focus about how you support your staff and students to grow and be in a better positions to succeed because of your leadership will help you decide how to develop your own skills.
Check out the article and consider this question daily: How will you improve so that at the end of the year, you know exactly how your school is better because of your leadership?
