Prioritize What Will Most Impact Learning

Pearls of Wisdom

Prioritize What Will Most Impact Learning


For over 30 years international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences. Each day of every program begins with a “pearl of wisdom,” a “'nugget of knowledge,” or a “gem of inspiration” from one of the participants. We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In this Pearl, David shares his experience struggling with prioritizing. He says an important lesson he’s learned is, “We all have to work hard as leaders, but we have to work smarter, not harder. We have to prioritize the outcomes that are going to have an actual effect on student learning and teacher performance.”


Professional positions cited were the ones held at the time of recording. The positions and schools of those quoted may have since changed.
