"This book provides a clear and practical understanding and approach to tackling the task of teacher learning at a time when “initiative fatigue” and “PD overload” are part of our everyday conversations. It allows us to pause for a moment, step back and examine our practices through a new lens. Leading Learning explains the “why” and the “how” of what we do."

"Teachers have become complacent and bored with regular “trainings” because they don’t solve problems.  This book will put that idea away and support learning to those who are in the classroom and who don’t have a process for solving problems. Collaborative learning will holds teachers and administration accountable for all children learning to the best of their ability and removes the “PD from hell” syndrome."
