Leadership at its Best


I so appreciate Steve Langford's approach to leadership. He is thoughtful, transparent and open to new possibilites. These qualities have brought about real and substantive change in the BSD since he arrived three years ago.




I also appreciated his final comments, when he articulated that his key dilemma is determining how IT services can best improve learning and how to sell this to the community as a whole. As a former classroom teacher, I think the key is give to teachers time and training so they may implement changes in their teaching.
He is wise... the money "is what it is" and the equity issue will be continuing issue in the BSD and society as a whole. It is the right battle to fight but is complex and will be lifelong dialogue in our nation.
As a leader, I hope Steve continues to explore how IT can partner with Teaching and Learning and tell the story of how technology genuinely enhances learning!

  1. Steve's idea of "telling stories" fits the Dan Pink mold, don't you think?

  2. It really is a huge issue to think of the magnitude of the task before Steve. It is a great lesson for us as educational leaders that we can help in some of the simplest ways....like facilitating the conversations that need to happen to help the IT department communicate successfully, or at least in a healthy way, with the school level departments they support.
