In-service day reflections

For many classroom educators, today is the beginning of “teacher in-service,” that time when we all get back into our classrooms after summer activities. For some it is a time of great expectations. We've been thinking all summer about how to set up that bulletin board better, or how to teach that first lesson on fractions a little differently. For others, it is a time of great anticipation; that new teacher is finally in her or his first classroom, hoping the pass code to the copy machine is correct and looking forward to that first day with kids in the room.

This group of exceptional leaders will begin discussions regarding “the state of educational leadership” and attempt to identify key strategies for ensuring great leadership in every school across Oregon.
