The Principal of Change

About

My name is George Couros, and I am currently a Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning with Parkland School Division, located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada, as well as an innovative teaching, learning, and leadership consultant. I am passionate about distributed leadership within my division, and believe that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders, will help to ensure that we meet the best needs of all children.

Personally, I am someone who is passionate about all of the things that I do.  I was lucky enough to marry my best friend (Paige Couros), who is an elementary school teacher and always keeps me grounded and reminds me how complex a teacher’s job is.  I believe that we must continuously “sharpen the saw” by taking part in other pursuits.  I love running and sports, and am a HUGE fan of the Los Angeles Lakers.  In fact, I have two dogs now that are named after a current and former Laker (Odom and Cooper). I do miss my dos Kobe andShaq who were my first pest ever (miss you buddy).

Music is also a passion of mine.  If you are ever interested in hearing what I like, check out my #georgegtunes that I post on Twitter for the world to hear. The more well rounded we are as educators, I believe, the more our students will see us as real people that they canconnect with in the classroom.
