It Pays To Have Responsive Classroom

How gratifying for us at Sewickley Academy to have this external validation of our decision to implement Responsive Classroom some five years ago. The impetus for us was that we believed and continue to believe that the social-emotional skills students learn through RC will contribute to helping us create the kind of supportive, collaborative, and constructive community of learners that we think is essential to supporting our Mission and Core Values. Such a benefit alone is one we feel strongly is worth the cost of implementing the program here at the Academy, and it is a benefit that our teachers report we can see in the day-to-day life of the Lower School.

Independent Schools Shouldn't Brand...They Should Blog!

Branding in independent schools is an interesting proposition. Facebook launched in February 2004, before its launch branding work was relevant and necessary after its launch branding work, for the most part, has become frivolous and wasteful.  Why? Because independent schools don’t define their brand anymore, the public does.

Success Consists of Going From Failure to Failure
My Weekend Update Newsletter

One of the 21st century skills we hope to instill in our students is the courage to take risks. A part of taking risks is the chance that you might fail. When you fail how do you react? What do you learn?

This past week I’ve thought a lot about failure and what that means with my day to day responsibilities. I’ve actually failed a lot. But the other side of risk is success. I’ve also had some success. How did I react to the success? What did I learn?

Do you take risks at work? Do you feel comfortable taking risks at work? Are we all modeling the behavior we want to see in our students?

I hope you’ll think about all of that for a few minutes. I also want you to think about a recent failure and what you did as a result to make yourself better.

Hope you have a great weekend!
