Leaders

LEAD WITH ACTION.

What if promoting the good of others overrode selfish aims?

What if leadership were more about ACTION than position? What if working together and asking for help wasn't a sign of weakness? What if debate about opposing perspectives did not divide us? What if promoting the good of others overrode selfish aims? What if educating ourselves about other’s ideas, cultures or beliefs led to greater justice in the world.. or even greater insight in our classrooms? What if we listened with respect for others and in service to a faith that teaches the love and forgiveness of a God who embraces us all? What if living a life of purpose guided us to act, lead and serve with unwavering integrity? Usher in a future where you're proud to be called a leader at Presbyterian School.

Resilience requires relationships, not rugged individualism.

Never before have school leaders and educators in general been under more pressure to see into the future. Change in the world is accelerating. Technologies now allow us to learn and create in ways that a decade ago seemed far-fetched. Our Head of Middle School, Charlie Gramatges, is proud to be a part of Change School, a powerful community of passionate and global educational leaders who are opening their minds to reimagine what school can and must become for the next generation to thrive in this modern, changing world. Charlie shares, "Change School connects me to other great thinkers in education who seek to redefine school via actionable steps and processes that dynamically benefit the student in our schools. The lessons learned from leaders and colleagues in the program demand that I consider ways to change the shape, physically and pedagogically, of our learning spaces. At Presbyterian School. The program directors provide an evocative sense of urgency with each conversation that has me thinking about how I can do better in educational leadership while I learn ways to mobilize those around me, building an even greater educational environment."

In the past year, Change School has challenged nearly 300 educational leaders from 14 different countries to see the world and their work differently. Thinking differently and building the capacity to turn thoughts into action is hard work. Together, they are rewriting the story of education.

 

Let's reimagine what school must become for the next generation to thrive.

Charles Gramatges, Head of Middle School
