In this episode, Eva Mireles and I chat about the importance of learning in teacher leadership development. Eva is a reading specialist and coach. She’s also a budding entrepreneur, passionate about helping teachers find a realistic approach to teaching reading to avoid overwhelm and focus on creating meaningful and engaging experiences for students.
Here’s a recap of the episode:
- Self-awareness helps a teacher leader to identify their learning needs and ask for help.
- Establish accountability networks/mechanisms for your learning and development journey, for example, have a circle of trusted individuals who can give honest feedback.
- Leading in today’s increasingly digital world requires improving one’s digital skills and sometimes seeking tech support.
- Stoke your own inner fire through self-care and participating in online communities to remain motivated and to continue inspiring others.
