Aligning Professional Development with School Needs
Reed, Peter
Principal Leadership, v10 n8 p62-64 Apr 2010
Growth opportunities have benefited thousands of successful leaders, so school leaders short on time and funds might consider purposefully and intentionally incorporating some of the concepts into their practice through collegial coaching. Although it takes discipline and a willingness on the part of leaders to share in one another's growth for the benefit of their students, collegial coaching with a leadership team models effective professional development behavior for teachers and others. Collegial coaching allows educators to experience on-the-job feedback to improve their practices. In this article, the author discusses collegial observations and coaching and describes how collegial coaching can be based on a performer's reflective review of a situation or event.
