Professional Associations Provide Insights, Leadership Tips, Guidance
For many years, I have been fortunate to have mentors and guides who have helped my career and my professional learning. Over time I have disciplined myself to read the journals, blogs, websites, and attend conferences of key/related professional associations. During the last two years in the superintendency, I am indebted to the great resources and help of the IASA, Illinois Association of School Administrators, and the AASA, the American Association of School Administrators (to name two great resources). In addition, I have learned more than I anticipated from the Twitter PLN I am lucky to interact with! My leadership advice today is: join organizations and make the time to read and reach out and network.
