At the core of a school leader’s supervision of teachers is the continued improvement of their instruction. If the instruction of the classroom teacher is not improving over time, the academic performance of students suffers enormously. The presenter asserts that the number one determinant of the academic success or failure of students is the classroom teacher. This high-energy, highly-engaging session will therefore provide attendees with strategies for maximizing their instructional leadership practices toward ensuring the continued instructional improvement of their teachers. School climate and culture will also be discussed in the context of the school environment being conducive to school leaders having the ability to spend maximum time in classrooms observing instruction including the time spent in pre and post observation conferences with teachers.
