This Much I Know About Love Over Fear ... : Creating a culture for truly great teaching Paperback / softback
by John Tomsett
Too many of our state schools have become scared, soulless places.
John Tomsett draws on his extensive experience and knowledge and calls for all those involved in education to find the courage to develop a leadership-wisdom which emphasises love over fear.
Creating a truly great school takes patience. Ultimately, truly great schools don't suddenly exist.
You grow great teachers first, who, in turn, grow a truly great school. There is a huge fork in the road for head teachers: one route leads to executive headship across a number of schools and the other takes head teachers back into the classroom to be the head teacher.
John strongly believes that if the head teacher is not teaching, or engaged in helping others to improve their teaching, in their school, then they are missing the point.
The only thing head teachers need obsess themselves with is improving the quality of teaching, both their colleagues' and their own. This Much I Know about Love Over Fear is an authentic personal narrative of teaching, leadership and discovering what really matters.
It gets to the heart of what is valuable in education and offers advice for those working in schools. Also by John Tomsett: This Much I Know about Mind Over Matter, ISBN 9781785831683.
