Presentation Title: School Leaders Set the Tone by Playing, Experimenting and Taking Risks

Presentation Description: Leaders play a major role in setting the tone for the school community. In today’s schools it’s essential that members of the community take risks and step outside of their comfort zone occasionally. At Graded, we learned that it is common for educators to be hesitant to try new things for fear of looking silly. This fear can inhibit learning and professional growth in today’s learning environment. This presentation will explore examples of how leaders at Graded model, support and encourage risky behavior and experimentation. School leaders play a major role in setting the tone and it’s imperative that he/she publicly experiment and take an occasional risk while they also encourage others to do the same. The presentation will feature stories from teachers and administrators.
