Aug 23, 2021

Jethro Jones, 2017 NASSP Digital Principal of the Year, is a former principal and host of Transformative Principal and co-founder of The Center for Cyberethics, independent, non-partisan educational institute dedicated to the study and promotion of cyberethics. Jethro is the author of the book, SchoolX: How principals can design a transformative school experience for students, teachers, parents – and themselves! Jethro currently consults schools and districts on redesign efforts that don't seem like another program. Jethro has worked as a principal at all K-12 levels, including a prison school, a district coach, distance learning team lead, and English teacher.

Key Takeaways:

  • Student driven learning is key
  • Teachers should attempt to fulfill the role of being a compass among us
  • Ask and then emphasize why teachers got into teaching
  • Only teachers care about standards not kids
  • Use content as your playground when teaching
  • Support student driven learning
  • Help teachers with the work it takes is work it takes to connect different subjects because it's harder for them then students
  • Gaining knowledge is not selfish if you share it
  • Accepting an event as trauma makes you a victim
