This is a significant achievement, because it's evidence that instructional leaders everywhere are seeking solutions for providing more frequent and meaningful feedback to their teams. That administrators are committed to increasing student achievement by improving educator effectiveness.
This is a big milestone, because it means we're making a real dent in the profession.
It makes a difference in your school when you get into classrooms and really see. When you provide feedback. When you're not just visible, but involved as an instructional leader.
It makes a difference when we, as a profession, say "We're instructional leaders, and this is where we belong—in classrooms."
