Leader Voices: Principals Reflect on the Evolution of Their Leadership
Marcellus, Angela; Flores, Matt; Craig, Anthony
Journal of Staff Development, v33 n6 p10-12, 14 Dec 2012
More than a decade of school leadership research from The Wallace Foundation highlights not only the critical role of the principal but also the practices that effective school leaders undertake. A recent brief (The Wallace Foundation, 2011) distills these practices into five key functions: (1) Shape a vision of academic success for all students; (2) Create a climate hospitable to education; (3) Cultivate leadership in others; (4) Improve instruction; and (5)Manage people, data, and processes to foster school improvement. The Standards for Professional Learning embed within all of these functions a keen focus on the learning of the adults in the school. As Angela Marcellus points out, an educator's growth is continuous. In this article, learn with three successful school leaders, including Marcellus, about their growth as leaders and how they make professional learning a part of the everyday work of schools.
