Qualities of a Literacy Leader

“Educational leadership is important. The big message from this BES is that the closer educational leaders get to the core business of teaching and learning, the more likely they are to have a positive impact on students.”

Robinson, Hohepa, Lloyd. (2009, p. 47).

“When teachers have participated in setting personal goals, understand how to monitor their progress towards them and have the support to make appropriate changes, they are more likely to engage at a deeper level and sustain change.”

Parr, Timperley, Reddish, Jesson, Adams (2007)
