I see myself as instructional leader and change agent. Acknowledging that today’s learners are different from previous cohorts, I accept the challenge to collaboratively prepare them for a future that, today, we cannot clearly describe. I believe we should build competencies — skills and knowledge of the curriculum — plus the positive attitudes, ethical behaviours and growth mindset to be successful in life. A lifelong learner, I see learning as bi-directional. Encouraging others to do so, I willingly share what I learn with others. Used correctly, I believe in the power of technology to magnify intellect.
