The most important rule of change is identifying what’s not going to change. – Doug Reeves
Let’s start with the premise that we are not total failures. Let’s begin with the mindset that we do an awful lot of things very, very well.
As public educators, in the Hilliard City Schools specifically, we are very skilled and successful in preparing students to be Ready for Tomorrow. With that said, we live our “passion for growth” and look for areas to improve each and every day.
As we live this growth mindset – as you lead in your 20 square feet – don’t forget to celebrate what’s working and identify the foundational skills that don’t change. Change creates productive discomfort, but it shouldn’t cause destruction of successful programs. Identify what’s not changing and cultivate a trusting environment.
