Principal Mike Sinclair of Brashier Middle College in Simpsonville, S.C., describes specific ways that principals can motivate teachers, including making their feedback more meaningful and relevant, valuing inquiry and curiosity, and reinforcing and rewarding effort. He describes setting up teachers to share lessons and visit each other’s classrooms so that they can motivate each other in a collaborative way. He reinforces teaching strategies that students say particularly helped them. He also discusses how these practices build on each other as teachers take ownership of them, in turn strengthening trust between teachers and school leaders.
