2) Effective Communicator

Learner-centered Communication & Community Relations

The second competency defines that the principal knows how to communicate and collaborate with all members of the school community, respond to diverse interests and needs, and mobilize resources to promote student success. You are invited to click here for my blog posts related to learner-centered communication and community relations. Here is how I strive to meet the expectations of this competency:

  • Crucial Conversations Training – attended a two-day seminar that taught skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics — at all levels within an organization.
  • Coppell High School Strategic Planning Committee and CISD Middle Schools Strategic Planning Committee – communicated and collaborated with diverse stakeholders to ensure that we created a strategy to innovatively and resourcefully meet the needs our all of our learners.
