“The educators featured in this book viewed obstacles as challenges to be overcome rather than reasons not to try. I hope every reader of this excellent book will engage fully in the PLC process.”

From the foreword by Richard DuFour

“With examples, resources, recommendations, and data, the contributors provide a road map for already high-performing schools that want to ensure that every student grows and achieves.”

Deborah Welch, CEO, Academy for International School Heads, Bangkok

“Timothy Stuart and the contributors are veteran international school educators who have been where you are. They work hard just like you do, and they speak your language. Together they humbly share their successes, lessons learned along the way, and even a few honest missteps. Ultimately, they share their total commitment to culture-shifting school improvement because they have seen the difference it can make, and they think it can work for you too.

“This book reads like a conversation, a conversation with friends and colleagues, who are saying, ‘Join us in the tough yet so worthwhile journey toward a learning-focused culture where all students learn at a high level.’ Get this book, settle in for a good read, and then join in the conversation that is happening around the world. If you’re serious about student learning, about improving your own teaching, about stabilizing your International school’s promise and outcomes, then this book is for you.”

Timothy P. Shuman, regional director for international schools, Association of Christian Schools International
