This Is What Comes With It… Stepping Into Real Classroom & School Leadership

School leadership takes on many forms from those who serve in formal leadership roles to those who stand before students each and every day. In order to step boldly into true service and leadership we must first know ourselves, our values, our why, and the habits and ways of thinking that hold us back. Maggie Riley, a certified Integrative Holistic Wellness Coach and Assistant Principal, shares her insights with Michelle Morris Jones on the Phenomenal Teaching Podcast. Maggie believes that stepping into real leadership means knowing ourselves so we can be our best on behalf of those we serve. When balancing compassion with accountability for both ourselves and others Maggie encourages us to avoid “that’s just the way it is thinking,” congeniality over collegiality, and burning out so we might step into possibility. Stepping into possibility requires connection, clarity, and compassion. As we all strive to make schools more phenomenal than ever before, listen in for ways to tap into your self as leader and for ways to break the cycle of overwhelm and drama.

When Maggie Riley isn’t serving students and teachers as an Assistant Principal she serves individuals and groups as an Expansion Coach through Riley Results Coaching. Maggie has more than a decade of experience in public education as both a teacher and school leader, with seven of those years as an instructional and leadership coach. She has her Masters degree in urban education from the University of Denver and her Integrative Holistic Coaching Certification with over 1000 hours in study and practice to earn certification as a Level II IHC coach.
