Hmm, this is really an interesting topic I sigh because, I have had a lot of school leaders ask me this question on different platforms, events, symposiums, workshops.
Questions like what do you do to a teacher who does not support your vision, growth and progress of your school?
I have decided to share some tips and insights on this thread today in form of some thought provoking questions, I want you to sincerely answer them and make remedy where necessary. I believe you will find this helpful.
1) How did you hire the teacher in the first place?
2) Did you ask the teacher about his/her personal vision, plans and future ambition? If you skip this part, you have made a major mistake. A teacher without a personal vision can never and will never see or find reasons to support your school’s vision.
3) How intentional have you been in getting to know the teachers in your school better?
4) What is your work ethic like, people will naturally mirror and do what they see their leaders do?
5) Have you invested in the teacher’s personal or professional development in anyway?
I believe answering the above questions will help you think critically about productive ways to raise teacher leaders in your school.
empowering individuals, transforming organizations.
