Build a professional community that fosters learning, reflection, and collaboration!

Professional portfolios give educational leaders a structure for sharing knowledge and viewing themselves as learners, collaborators, and facilitators of community learning. Drawing from her experience in working with schools across the country, Mary E. Dietz guides educators in the highly rewarding process of designing and implementing a leadership portfolio.

This practical guide provides a four-part system for leading a professional learning community in developing action plans, advancing goals, and documenting achievements.

  • Develop a comprehensive system for continuous individual and schoolwide improvement

Designing the School Leader's Portfolio, Second Edition, helps principals, district administrators, and staff developers build a professional communitythat works and learns together.
