A few weeks ago, several HKA teachers, administrators and myself had the chance to attend a workshop with Andrew Hargreaves from the Lynch School of Education at Boston College in the United States. Andy talks a lot about leadership in education and when he talks about leadership, he talks about the importance of stories in our lives. Hargreaves reminded us of the power of stories to change our lives and shape our future.
I thought about that again this week during Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences. At HKA, we know the importance of data and test scores but when we think about students and learning, we think first of stories and we are keen to share those stories with you. I hope you heard some meaningful stories about your children this week, and I hope that your students are regaling you with tales from HKA!
When we talk about HKA to people beyond campus, we tell stories, too. If you have a story you think we should be sharing, please let us know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email email@example.com. to set up a time to say hello in person.
Wishing you a lovely holiday, see you on the 26th!
