Everyone talks about wanting to have an academically high-performing campus and a campus in which the students and staff love to show up every day. But very few school leaders talk about what it actually takes to create this kind of environment. Even fewer school leaders will share their failures so openly. Therefore, I am co-authoring a book called WIN Time: Fearlessly Transforming Your School. In this book, we share our success strategies and our hearts with the world. This book challenges you to change the conversations we are having with each other from what we can’t do to what we can do.
Several long months ago, my superintendent (Morris Lyon) and I were called to write a book. We couldn’t stop thinking about it, so we went for it. WIN Time is the exact kind of leadership book I wish I had several years ago. It is motivating and strategy-filled, and it changes how you look at what you do or why you are doing the things you are doing.
Let me ask you a few questions.
WIN Time: Fearlessly Transforming Your School
WHAT THIS BOOK HAS TO OFFER
Defining WIN Time
Following the path to success
Building a team
Visioning your win
Sustaining your win
I believe successful schools must have strong and effective leaders. The fundamental purpose for writing this book is to assist you as your transform your school into a true, high-performing school and to help you improve student achievement and learning. I hope that by sharing our experiences and what we have learned, we can help you on this journey.
A true learner-centered school is composed of professionals with a passion for learning. If we, as educators, can model a love for learning, it sends a powerful message to the students. I have learned many lessons over the past twenty years as an administrator. Hopefully, some of the lessons shared in the book will make your journey a little easier. Remember to be your best self, build relationships, be grateful, lead with passion, and always model a love for learning.
