Our education system is one of many systems and institutions originally designed to perpetuate inequities. At Lead by Learning, we see the power of honest professional learning conversations to interrupt and most importantly, change inequitable practices.
When we create an environment for brave, bold professional growth, we create a culture of learning. Grounded in empathy, courage, and shared responsibility, we can better look within ourselves and help each other to see what we cannot see on our own. By changing the way educators learn together, we can more deeply understand how to serve our most marginalized learners, all with the goal of making lasting, substantive improvements for students and the educators who serve and support them.
Our work as mentors, coaches, program designers and facilitators leverages inquiry as a launching pad. We encourage and celebrate educators who grow their ability to ask questions and nurture curiosity about their learners and use data in all forms to uncover and then address learners’ experiences, needs and potential.
