Key Takeaways:
  • Swimming lessons are a good example of the need to differentiate based on levels of readiness.
  • The most important aspect of supporting teachers is having resources available.
  • Schools should be passing strategies to families for learning to continue at home.
  • You engage people by reaching them on an emotional level.
  • We need to examine exactly what we are measuring with grades. They are a snapshot in time and reflect much more than what is actually occurring with student learning.
  • We have to make use of periodic reviews if we are to expect students to be able to retain information over the long term.
  • Use technology in a way that has students creating and solving problems rather than just extensions of traditional methods.
  • We have to teach students how to fail and fail correctly without punishing them with grades. It is how you handle failure that makes the difference. The YouTube example for learning.

Who am I?

I’ve been an educator in Massachusetts for 23 years.  I’m finishing my 16th year as a building leader.  I’m a teacher centered Principal and passionate about continuous improvement and the idea that success is not a destination, but a process. I’m active on social media, vlog about continuous improvement on a weekly basis, and wrote a book also called SEEing to Lead as a way to help everyone improve education as a whole by promoting my “just cause”: improving the educational experience for as many people as possible by being purposeful, acting with integrity, and building character.
