As a principal I used to be frustrated by how indifferent many of my teachers acted toward professional development activities. After all, I had spent a great deal of time putting the presentations and activities together. I had made sure they were aligned with my building goals. And I always had engaging stories and great jokes. So why weren’t my teachers as excited as I was? Why wasn’t I seeing the impact in classrooms?
