Key Takeaways:

  • It's important to take an empathic approach if you are to support all teachers.
  • Building diverse teams is essential to successfully innovating in your school.
  • Learning is the intersection of 3 things and that is what creates activation: meaningful, measurable, and memorable.
  • It's important to prioritize experiences, showcase moments, and highlight events to memorialize student learning.
  • The new four Cs are compassion, connection, culture, and climate. These build motivation and student agency.
  • Drop the D when talking about shared and distributed leadership. Those should not be destinations but instead processes. For example share the leadership, distribute the leadership
  • If kids don't care that's not their problem, it's the teacher's problem. If teachers don't care, that's not the teacher's problem that's the leader's problem.
