Now that I'm officially at the helm and also in a new school district, I've been thinking a lot about student learning outcomes and the big picture for my career. I've become an elementary school principal, so I've accomplished a huge goal at a fairly young age. Now what expectations do I have for our teachers/students in my new role?
I'm doing a lot of observing and asking questions as I learn new systems and structures in my new setting.
An article in the NY Times today has re-clicked my thinking about learning outcomes and what is important and what our teachers should focus on and what I should be promoting and focusing on, and what is relevant and rigorous for our children.
