This slideshare is from the 2010 ISTE Conference which just concluded. It was presented by Chris Lehmann of the Science Leadership Academy in Philidelphia. Please share your thoughts and impressions.

There are administrators who have been educators and understand the teaching process. They are forward thinkers who empower teachers to use their skills and creativity to connect with students and help them find success. When a teacher comes to them with an idea, they say, “Great! How can I best help you?” They are both dreamers and enablers.

Then, there are administrators who administrate by following a list of rubrics. They only make decisions based on their rubrics. If something comes along that doesn’t quite fit their model, they’re lost. Those admins do not make decisions based on the needs of students. They make decisions based on adherence to their administrative formulas. They neither dream or enable. They demand and expect. A teacher can differentiate instruction as long as all teachers do it the same way and that instruction has received the administrative stamp of approval.

Thanks to @ShellTerrell for sharing this link. I am looking forward to your comments.
