As educators and administrators, we play multiple roles on a daily basis. One of the most crucial roles is that of a learner. Although educators and administrators are often viewed as guiding or leading their students and staff, we are all continually learning alongside each other, especially as we strive to keep ourselves updated with current practices, explore inclusive ways to meet the needs of our diverse student populations and create a more profound impact on our literacy programming.

Our effectiveness in educating depends largely on engaging in iterative cycles of continuous improvement and learning. This helps us identify more meaningful initiatives and construct more robust pathways forward. By making changes a part of our learning ecosystem, we can benefit all of our learners.

Sometimes, like our students, we need support to navigate and comprehend the wide range of literacy topics in educational research and how to use them to leverage growth in our unique school context. As we continue to gain more insight from the breadth and depth of research, it can be highly beneficial for international schools to have guidance in understanding where they can strengthen or improve their literacy work, especially from someone who understands their setting firsthand.

Due to the scarcity of time in schools and the numerous things to contend with, it is essential to recognize where you need to prioritize change and why. Generating a solid strategy and plans for implementation processes ensures that not only is your time well spent but that your plans come to fruition and lead to deeper impact.
