22 IN THEIR OWN WORDS Depth of Reflective Practice: Evidence of developing leadership capacity Sean – I have learned about myself that underneath a set of challenges and insecurities is a good teacher, ready and willing to maximize student learning. Jessica - This was maybe the best part of the LCR experience…we didnt just observe a master teacher at work; we learned how to effectively lead workshop instruction ourselves. Kari - The authentic experience of the LCR is something I will learn from for months to come. Amanda - I am listening to conversations that I have with others around instruction, and I hear a different person. I hear someone who is confident about her understandings, someone who asks questions to get to the answer, someone who has kids at the center of her conversation more often, and someone who is patient and intentional. I love this new person that I hear.
