Full disclosure: it wasn't just the apps that helped me lose weight, there was some sweat involved. (Actually lots of sweat. There's no pill to make this happen; if there was Oprah would have invented it. She had to lose weight the hard way and so do…

What's a PLN?

EdCampNYC

EdCampNYC was a great event this past weekend. I woke up on Saturday wondering why I signed up for this, but after the day was over, I was glad I did. I feel like a phone that's been fully recharged. 
I catch up with friends and colleagues, I meet new friends and colleagues, and I learn from both. EdCamps attendees are the type of people that want to be the best at what they do so they therefore inspire each other along the way. They are good as some aspect of…

Come to the edge

Sometimes we need a bit of a push to help us fly.

We might seem outwardly confident, knowledgeable and experienced. We might even believe that ‘we’re worth it”, but many of us falter when it comes to taking the first step to realizing our dreams.

My colleague Peter Smith often helps school leaders ‘fly’ by reading this Apollinaire quote at the culmination of a two week-long leadership programme.

“Come to the edge," he said.

Lack of Teacher and Principal Voice is the real problem with School Imrpovement

I recently completed a study on the beliefs of teachers and principals of their ability to impact student learning during school improvement. My study contained interviews of 13 principals and teachers from across the United States who have experienced school improvement at some level. I did this study because in my own district, at the time that I started this study, 31% of the schools in my district were still operating in failing status and this just didn't make sense to me.
