Becoming the Leader Your Students Need

Clinic Synopsis:

Who we are impacts how we lead, and how we lead matters in creating optimal learning environments for our students. But how do we become the best leader we can be? Through personal stories and probing questions this session will encourage teachers of any level to reflect upon their own leadership. After an honest look into who we truly are, we will explore ten ways we can grow as servant leaders for the benefit of our students and the music we create together.
