The changes in the ripple effect from being a teacher to being a leader?


The transition from classroom teacher to a leadership role is a huge switch in how I function as an educator.  One of my goals in my new role is how I can effect change in a leadership role.  The ripple effect is different when the pond is the four walls of a classroom, versus when the pond becomes the lake of a district.  

What are areas you all have focused on or worked on that have made big ripples that create lasting change in your district?

One of the most impactful changes I’ve made as a leader is connected to intervention supports. I created a system of intervention for K-8 mathematics with resources to fill a need that existed in my district (and beyond). Then I was (and still am) able to provide professional learning and coaching supports for educators.

My relationships with my educators serve as the foundation of their trust in me. I spend time in their classrooms, listen to them, check on them, respond to them, and make that human connection with them.

I recommend that you seek opportunities to fill a need. Be patient, because the benefit of your solution will depend on the authenticity of the need.
