I have realized recently that I have begun to turn a corner in my ability to live the life of an instructional leader. I am beginning to define more clearly within myself exactly what I am looking for during learning engagements. From that, I am beginning to be able to better pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. I am even slowly beginning to work out plans and put together resources for improvement. Now I need to learn how to coach. I think when I get the coach thing down, that's when I'll really begin to make progress as an instructional leader. Furthermore, my teachers will benefit directly affecting the students and their learning. I've got a lot to learn, but I'm turning the corner!
