Last year over break I worked on the 20 ’16’ ways-this year I took a little turn on the post.
In order to really make a positive impact for students-it is key that we as the adults are coming from a place of positivity, mutual appreciation and respect for others as well. During the 2016-17 school year our district has embraced a “Yes….and!” culture for ourselves and our students. By jumping in with both feet we are taking risks, celebrating failures and modeling for our students that-we don’t give up!
Want more resources? Check out the following books:
Kids Deserve It!: a great resources for ideas and examples of schools going ‘all in’ for kids! Our PBIS Leadership team is reading this book and sharing ideas back to the staff as a whole during staff meetings.
Hacking Leadership I keep going back to this book as a way to find opportunities to develop my own skills and build stronger relationships with stakeholders.
Renegade Leadership Resources are plenty in this book! Brad does a great job of laying out how leaders can delicately blend innovation with current practices to make learning more meaningful for students and staff.
Hacking Project Based Learning If you are new to the concept-or looking for ways to more fully incorporate PBL in your classroom-this is the resource! Looking forward to bringing this to our school in 2017.
What does 2017 have in store for you and your school? Whatever it is make it epic and awesome!
