“Trust as the Core of Instructional Leadership is everything I value as a school leader. Placing instructional coaching within our daily interactions offers a skill set for building authentic trust and fostering a dynamic, learner-centered school environment. Delia Racines’s book is the piece that was missing in my work with aspiring school leaders, and it provides concrete practice in the field and aligned self-reflection for deeper adult learning.”
“Delia Racines’s knowledge, experience, and in-depth research demonstrate that she is a thought leader within the education sector. She delivers comprehensive information brilliantly, articulating systems and strategies that are certain to strengthen communication, inspire trust, and drive change. This book needs to be in the hands of every educator!”
“As educational leaders we play many roles, including, but not limited to, instructional leader, listener, communicator, and facilitator. In Trust as the Core of Instructional Leadership, Delia Racines offers solution-oriented leaders key foundations and research-based tools to guide them through five principles of establishing trust to support schools. These principles of trust are essential to shift our thinking of what trust is and how we can successfully build it within our school teams.”
“Shifting practice for the better requires a certain vulnerability. In Trust as the Core of Instructional Leadership, Delia Racines not only invites that vulnerability and gives it a place of value but anchors it to a plethora of resources and ideas for professional reflection, which leads to the development of best practices for student success.”
