Reflection on what I learned in week two. Class 5301

Reflection on what I learned in my second week in class 5301
I learned that inquiry research is a very important aspect to have into consideration in every campus and across Districts.  I truly believe that teacher and administrators need to find time in their busy schedules to do inquiry. According to Dr. Timothy superintendent of Beaumont ISD suggest for administrators and teachers to never stop learning and look for professional developments that interest you. He also states that if you re brown you will died and if you green you will grow.  I also, learned that the following are items to consider when planning on doing inquiry research since we deal with them daily in our schools.
1.    Staff development
2.    Curriculum development
3.    Individual teacher(s)
4.    Individual student(s)
5.    School culture/community
6.    Leadership
7.    Management
8.    School performance
9.    Social justice or equity issues

      Another aspect to reflect on is to know all the responsibilities that a principal has deal with on a daily basis. One important aspect to consider is to find ways to motivate and keep teachers and staff alive. Offering Professional developments that engage teachers, finding topics that can easily relate to the daily issues involved in a classroom. I believe that to be an administrator is not an easy task. However, I am looking forward for upcoming challenges in my future administrative career.

  1. I am amazed everyday at the amount of responsibility and work that is placed on my current principal. I really feel for her! I loved the first page in our Dana textbook where she describes a day in the life of a principal. It is all so true! I also loved the quote to never stop learning. What a great motto to live by!
