What Does it Mean to be a 21st Century Edcuation Leader?

December 12, 2019 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm EST

Education Support Professionals, like all educators, are making, and will face, some of the toughest decisions in the history of their union and public education. To be equipped, educators must come to see themselves as leaders in their unions and in their professions. Developed by practitioners, and using proven research and theories on leadership development, the NEA Leadership Competency Framework provides a lens through which educators can self- identify their leadership competency. When used with intentionality, the framework is also a developmental tool that can help educators create a plan for continuous, life-long learning and growth. In this session, we will discuss an approach for deepening the awareness and use of the framework.
