So, I’ve been talking to teachers and administrators about where our school is going lately.
The discussions have led me to spiral in on two primary questions1:
1. Given the inability to offer financial incentives, how else do you attract and retain superior teachers?
2. What immediate evidence should be apparent to show that your campus is an effective learning environment?
How would you answer these if you were interviewing for an administrator position at a new school? (or conversely, if you don’t administrate, how would you like your administrator to answer this question?)
1 If you’re a teacher at my school, don’t be surprised if you see these questions come to you via some other way. I’ve been meme pushing, which I do much better in small circles than here on the big giant interwebs.
