Any teacher can be a master teacher. In Never Underestimate Your Teachers: Instructional Leadership for Excellence in Every Classroom, author Robyn Jackson presents a new model for understanding teaching as a combination of skill and will, and explains the best ways to support individual teachers’ ongoing professional development. Here, you’ll learn how to meet your teachers where they are and help every one of them – from the raw novice to the savvy veteran, from the initiative-weary to the change-challenged to the already outstanding – develop the mindset and habits of masters teachers.
Never Underestimate Your Teachers contains real-life examples, practical tools, and strategies for managing time and energy demands to help you build your capacity for more effective leadership as you raise the level of instructional excellence throughout your school.
To move your school forward you must move the people in it. If you want a master teacher in every classroom, you must commit to helping every teacher be a master teacher. That work begins here.
