TGIF!!!! With two late night for parent-teacher-conferences, this has been a long week.
Today was not a day that was easily distinguished from other days this week. Nothing out of the ordinary happened.
I will use the blog to reflect on leadership in my role. Our text book talks about librarians as leaders in the school and I have found this to be true. Below are examples of some the the leading I’ve done.
- RTI facilitator
- PLC leader
- Staff-Development coordinator and presenter
- Technology committee
- Consigliere to the principal
While I enjoy all of these roles I sometimes feel that the school system takes shortcuts and underpays. The same thing happened when I was a reading specialist and curriculum coordinator. The school gets what amounts to an assistant principal but they only have to pay a teacher salary. That’s not right. So, the leadership role is a mixed bag in my mind.
On the excellent side, I feel that I’ve made a BIG difference at my school. Since I came we’ve put RTI in place, refined our use of assessments and data-based decision-making, and started 6-Traits writing.
