Leading Connected Classrooms- Communities

Over the next month, this blog will feature excerpts and guest posts surrounding my latest book, Leading Connected Classrooms- The Heart and Soul of Teaching and Learning. This book is designed for teachers, teacher leaders, and building leaders who are looking to bring excellence to the learning in their schools.


Communities can be places that judge our kids for their individuality. They can be places that cause our students to be unsafe. Our communities can be filled with pessimism that sucks the energy out of the educational system. Our communities can struggle to see the potential of our students. Communities, the glue needed to maintain the learning ecosystem, can so often unintentionally erode the fabric that educators are attempting to weave.
