Thank you for visiting the ISU Ed. Leadershop. Our intent over the past few years has been to field-test community-engaged writings for PK-20 practitioner conversation -- quick, 5-minute "read's" that help put into perspective the challenges and opportunities in our profession. Some of the writings have remained here solely; others have been developed further for other outlets. Our space has been a delightful "sketch board" for some very creative minds in leadership, indeed.

We believe that by kicking around an idea or two and not getting too worked-up over it, the thinking and writing involved have even greater potential to make a difference on behalf of those we serve. In such, please give us a read; share with others. We encourage your thoughts, opinions, feelings, and reactions to our work and thank you for taking your time. You keep us relevant.

Time for Our Nation, and for YOU

Time for Our Nation, and for YOU

From all of us at the ISU Ed. Leadershop and from the Indiana State University’s Department of Educational Leadership in the Bayh College of Education, we want to extend our heartfelt THANKS to you for all you do in educating our nation’s school children.

As America celebrates our country’s independence this week and collectively reflects upon the gifts that freedom provides, please consider using these moments of national togetherness as opportunities for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

We hope that you will consider being a bit “self-ful” in doing what you need to do for yourself, so that our country’s children can have your leadership at peak performance after this brief and well-deserved "pause," from your desk, classroom, or office.

Remember that the time you take away from your desk this month is not taking you farther away from students, staff, or leadership; it is bringing you closer to yourself. 

And you need to do that, from time to time.  Enjoy your summer!
