Leading from the Classroom
"When are you going to become a principal?"
Sound familiar? To many, the logical next step after one has achieved a measurable level of success as a teacher is to pursue the administrative path. This is a great step for many, and a noble pursuit. But what if you love to lead -- you just don’t want to leave the classroom? What is the logical next step for you?
Join Dr. Rachael Milligan, assistant dean of Lipscomb University’s College of Education, Director of the Ayers Institute, and lead faculty of Lipscomb’s Leading in Curriculum and Instruction program and a special guest as they discuss leading from the classroom. Learn about the characteristics of strong teacher leadership and gain practical strategies for honing your leadership skills from the classroom.
This online webinar is appropriate for teachers and those who work with educators in planning their career path. We will send you instructions for joining the live session and the video replay in the days prior to the online webinar.
