Between the Head and the Teachers

Craig Doerksen July 16, 2017

Presented at:
SCL Summer Conference 2017


Teachers are the hands of the school. Between them and the Head of School, division heads must animate and extend the Head's vision and leadership to support teachers executing on that vision - and give the Head of School and information and understanding he or she needs to continue to lead the school in fulfilling its mission. Craig will draw on a decade as division head at Regents School of Austin, sharing lessons, insights, and stumbles, and discuss ways division heads can expand their capacity to fulfill their school's mission.
