To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe. – Marilyn vos Savant
As educators, we all have formal educations; we have been classically trained in our craft. We have studied instructional techniques, crafted curriculum, and read volumes on leadership. We have great knowledge . . . what is required of us is observation.
Our growth mindset is predicated on change. We must use our knowledge as the springboard for growth . . . our knowledge to test change models. We change, observe, evaluate, and improve. It’s the observations that create the success. Putting our knowledge into action, building connections and having conversations, provides the opportunity for true growth.
