When I first read this week’s #YourEdustory topic; “What is the best thing you do in your school?” I felt very uncomfortable about answering. I’m not sure if it is a teacher thing, an Australian thing or a me thing; to not naturally and comfortably talk about what you are good at.
Yet I knew the answer straight away, so why shouldn’t I answer.
The best thing I do ….. is provide the logical thinking, the organisation, the practicalities, the hard work …… that enable the innovative ideas of others to happen! I am not necessarily the most creative, the big picture thinker, the innovator; however I do know a great idea when I see, hear or read about one and I can help make it happen. I bring a calm, consistent, logical, practical, make things happen approach to my role as a school leader.
And I will happily spend as many hours as you need discussing your ideas, trialling them, reflecting on them, refining them and working with you to make them work.
This is one of the many things I love about my job.
And just in case you haven’t seen the ‘lone nut’, view it here.
