This summer I have made three goals for analyzing my abilities and weaknesses as an instructional leader (head of middle school). 

Step 1: Participate and complete the Instructional Leadership Challenge.

Step 2: Read and internalize Teach, Reflect, Learn: Building Your Capacity for Success in the Classroom. I am using this text with new faculty as a stepping stone to redefine professional values in education. I have included the video in this post of the two authors, Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral, as a primer to the concepts they present in their book.

Step 3: Attend the School Leadership Institute, a powerful, week-long workshop that will analyze my strengths and areas of development as a principal. I have already asked a number of teachers, administrators, and parents to complete a 360-degree survey that I will use as the foundation for my week of learning. This workshop will help direct my professional development for years to come.

I am very excited about this summer and the plans I have to make myself better for the students with whom I interact, the teachers I have the honor of leading, and school I represent.
