A Leader’s Learning Adventure: Making School Even Better Through Higher-Order Thinking! 📚🧠

by Paul Romani (M.Ed.)

Ever wonder how we keep making our school an even more amazing place for our kids? Well, it all starts with a bit of curiosity and a whole lot of learning, not just for our students, but for us, the school leaders, too! 📚💡

Why We Ask “Why?” 🤔

My journey to make our school the best it can be led me to dive into some pretty cool books and ideas.

Think of it like becoming a detective in the world of leadership, trying to uncover the secret sauce that makes everything work even better for our kids and community. 🕵️‍♂️✨


What’s This ‘Higher-Order Thinking’ Anyway? 🧠

Imagine not just learning facts, but really thinking about them, turning them over in your mind, and asking, “How can we use this to make things better?” That’s what higher-order thinking is all about.

It’s like teaching our brains to be superheroes, finding creative ways to solve problems and make awesome decisions. 🦸‍♀️🦸‍♂️

Bloom's Taxonomy

Creating a Place Where Everyone Grows 🌱

One of the big ideas I’ve been exploring is how important it is to listen, care, and speak honestly with each other.

It’s about making sure everyone—students, teachers, and parents—feels valued and understood.

This helps us all grow, learn, and feel happy to be part of the Pear Tree family. 💬❤️

Turning Ideas Into Action 🌉

Here’s where the adventure gets really exciting! We’re taking these big ideas and bringing them to life at Pear Tree.

Whether it’s finding better ways to work together, making sure everyone feels heard, or introducing fun and interesting changes that make learning even cooler, it’s all about making our school the best place it can be. 🎉📚

Why It Matters to You and Your Kids 🏡

These aren’t just fancy ideas for the classroom; they’re about making sure our kids are ready to take on the world with confidence, kindness, and smarts.

And we want you, our awesome parents, to be right there with us, sharing ideas, dreams, and even challenges, as we make this journey together. 🌍👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Join the Adventure! 🚶‍♂️➡️🎈

This journey of learning and growing never ends, and there’s always something new and exciting around the corner.

I’m so pumped to see where we can go together, making Pear Tree School not just a place to learn, but a place to thrive. 🚀❤️
