Presented by Ellie Walsh-Moots

Wednesday, February 8, 2023
9:00 -11:00 am Central 
St. Bernard Academy, Nashville

Are you an educator who holds leadership positions alongside your instructional responsibilities? You are a middle leader, an impactful part of your school due to your unique position connecting policy and classroom practice. Many educational middle leaders struggle to find time for strategic analysis of the power of their leadership within the multi-faceted demands of the role. This morning session will provide a framework for reflection, distill current research into applicable tools, and foster collaborative conversations with middle leaders from other school settings. Middle leadership is much more than tasks you complete on top of your teaching load. Join us to reinvigorate your middle leadership!

Target Audience: 
This session is ideal for department chairs, team or grade-level leads, mentor teachers, and any other educator who leads from early childhood to secondary school.

Presenter Bio: Ellie Walsh-Moots
Ellie Walsh-Moots spends her days encouraging junior high students to be practicing student-historians at St. Bernard Academy in Nashville, Tennessee. Like many educators, her passion for pedagogy and commitment to growth has led her to also take on school leadership roles in addition to instructional responsibilities, including positions as a house leader, technology integration coordinator, and department chair. Inspired by these experiences, Ellie completed a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching focused on the experience and development of middle leaders in Scotland in the spring of 2022. By sharing her findings alongside insights from the broader research field, she hopes to empower busy educational middle leaders to better understand the impact of their complex and contextual roles.
