New voices – Dave Sherman

Miguel challenged us to find new voices. Between now and February 17 I am profiling eight nine bloggers that I’ve found informative and intriguing.

Today’s new voice: Dave Sherman, Mr. Sherman’s Blog

Dave is the principal of South Park Elementary School in Deerfield, Illinois. He has past experience as a principal of another school and an assistant principal. He also has taught elementary and middle grades. Dave is a wonderful example of a busy principal who somehow still finds the time to be reflective about his administrative practice and its intersections with larger educational issues. Here are a few posts to get you started:

Previous new voices: Kelly Christopherson, Scott Elias, Jim Forde, Brian Saxton, Chris Hitch, Scott Schwister, Rick Scheibner

Happy reading!

P.S. Kelly just profiled another new voice. Awesome!

  1. Scott,
    Thank you for sharing your finds. I especially enjoyed reading Dave’s posts about self-directed learners.

  2. Scott,
    Wow! I don’t quite know what to say other than I really appreciate you highlighting my blog. When I first started blogging, my intention was to inform our parents of activities and events taking place at school, and to share a few thoughts about life at our school. I guess there is a lot more we can do with this technology than I originally thought.

    The biggest challenge for me, which you alluded to, is finding time to blog and be a full-time principal. I have been staying up way too late at night!
    – Dave
