Leadership and Team Development
In order for district and school leaders to translate strategic plans into transformational change at the classroom level, educational leaders must develop their will, skill, knowledge, capacity, and emotional intelligence to be able to influence teacher practice in becoming culturally competent educators. This series of workshops will employ a coaching based approach for district and school leaders to develop and lead effective instructional conversations focused on reaching equitable outcomes. Educators have to be skillful in talking about, and coaching towards, equity in a way that allows others to embrace change. These skills will help support the social, emotional, and intellectual development of students who have traditionally been underserved. We use coaching techniques to develop and strengthen school leaders’ work in becoming more effective educators, teammates, and leaders for equity.
