Fortunately, the most difficult part of the process so far has been determining what leave out. If this were not a problem, I'd be concerned. If I could dust off my resume and it was ready to go, it would be time to retire. I would have stopped growing professionally.
For me, new challenges and learning opportunities are the life-blood of my career. Without them, stagnation sets in. Each day provides new opportunities to learn and grow. It is up to me to take advantages of those opportunities.
Through the process of updating my resume, I am tracking my professional development as well as determining the areas in which I need more experience. Once I'm done, I will have a better picture of my current status and can make a game plan for growth.
As a school leader, it is so important that I grow in my profession and model the growth process for others. If I want the teachers in my building to be learners who are willing to take risks, I must be the same. Updating my resume, when approached with the right mindset, is a tool to facilitate this growth.
