The IPA is extremely excited to start a year-long conversation on the power of self-reflection for school leaders. It is hard to find a school leader that does not believe in the value of reflection and self-assessment, but it has been our experience that this is one area that becomes difficult to maintain as the stress of life and job close in around us. Our hope is to keep reflection at the forefront of everyone’s mind through our new initiative REFLECT: 365.  Learn more about how you can get involved.
