WIN TIME: Fearlessly Transforming Your School

Everyone talks about wanting to have an academically high-performing campus and a campus in which the students and staff love to show up every day.  But very few school leaders talk about what it actually takes to create this kind of environment.  Even fewer school leaders will share their failures so openly.  Therefore, I am co-authoring a book called WIN Time: Fearlessly Transforming Your School.  In this book, we share our success strategies and our hearts with the world.  This book challenges you to change the conversations we are having with each other from what we can't do to what we can do.

Several long months ago, my superintendent (Morris Lyon) and I were called to write a book. We couldn't stop thinking about it, so we went for it. WIN Time is the exact kind of leadership book I wish I had several years ago. It is motivating and strategy-filled, and it changes how you look at what you do or why you are doing the things you are doing. 

Let me ask you a few questions.

Do you ever feel stuck trying to find a way to provide the interventions and enrichments for your students?

Do you have a system to monitor student growth? 

WIN Time will equip you with ideas to be inspired to take action to transform your campus.

I believe successful schools must have strong and effective leaders.

I hope that by sharing our experiences and what we have learned, we can help you on this journey.

A true learner-centered school is composed of professionals with a passion for learning. If we, as educators, can model a love for learning, it sends a powerful message to the students. I have learned many lessons over the past twenty years as an administrator. Hopefully, some of the lessons shared in the book will make your journey a little easier. Remember to be your best self, build relationships, be grateful, lead with passion, and always model a love for learning.

  1. I have just purchased this book from Amazon and I can't wait to begin reading it. I do have a specific question that I'm not sure if you could answer. When doing WIN time as a school, what do you use to progress monitor ALL students? Or do you only focus on progress monitoring your tier 2/tier 3 students? Thanks!

  2. I have just ordered this book from Amazon and I am excited to receive it and begin reading it. I do have a question, and it may be answered throughout the book. But, when you utilize WIN time with your school, what do you use to progress monitor all students? Or do you only progress monitor your tier 2/tier 3 kiddos?
