You Can’t Fire Your Way to Excellence

In this workshop, Evan shares 5 specific strategies he has learned to improve staff performance.  Effective principals understand it takes time for a teacher to grow and develop the skills necessary to integrate best practices into a learner-centered environment. It’s important to understand this: a principal cannot build a positive student-focused culture by removing staff in hopes of the perfect teacher showing up for an interview.
