Why Collective Teacher Efficacy PD?
Collective Teacher Efficacy (CTE), the shared belief that the school's staff can positively impact student achievement – despite other influences in the students' lives that challenge their success – dramatically improves schools! The impact of CTE is “greater than three times more powerful and predictive of student achievement than socioeconomic status, student motivation, concentration, persistence, and engagement,” John Hattie and his co-authors wrote in 2018.
The opposing belief, “Collective Futility” is what destroys the teaching profession. The moment we believe that our efforts won’t matter or have an impact is when we stop taking responsibility for addressing our classroom challenges, stop seeking to improve, become cynical, demand that others solve our problems, and believe the myth that the solution is outside of our control. We become bitter, not better.
Reclaim your staff’s power to influence change. You’ll achieve your team goals faster and more sustainably than before, members will feel cared for, have a sense of belonging, purpose and their social and emotional needs will be met. Create a “collaborative leadership model” that will reduce burnout for the entire staff (admin included), and improve staff retention, mental health, wellness, and teacher performance, resulting in — Improved student achievement.
