Leaving the classroom is never an easy decision, but we can certainly arm ourselves with the best intel before we do. In our conversation, Tara and I discussed the inherent challenges of considering a move out of the classroom and what to expect once you take your first leadership role.
In my book From Teacher to Leader: Finding Your Way as a First-Time Leader Without Losing Your Mind, I share my journey away from the classroom and into the role of curriculum leader. Hopefully, after listening and then giving it a read, you can make a good decision and avoid some of the mistakes I made.
I'd love to hear your thoughts... what are you still worried about? What questions haven't been answered? Give a shout out and I'll try to answer them.
