Leading from the Middle: supporting teacher growth
Presented by: Anna Bennett
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
Middle leaders are critical to school improvement; unlike principals, who are strategically positioned to set the direction for a school, middle leaders are also influential because of their close proximity to classroom practice. Middle leaders typically lead an aspect of teaching and learning across the school, monitor and evaluate performance, and lead and build teams that implement change. They can help to create a focus on learning and contributing to the culture that supports it.”
