About the Nominee

Brief Comments - What other facts should we know about your nominee?
Knowing Chris as a colleague and friend, he is not only a great educator, but a self-less learner. As I've grown as an educator and leader, Chris has been a constant source of inspiration, knowledge and reflection for those in his PLN. He is a stubborn advocate for kids, and will do whatever it takes to keep them at the center of the table. I've overheard his students, teachers and families raving about his work ethic, compassion and commitment to educational reform. Without a doubt, Chris exemplifies what is good about leadership in American education.

About the Nominee

Brief Comments - What other facts should we know about your nominee?
Chris Lehmann is my nomination for secondary school principal because he not only talks the talk. He gets right in their and walks the walk...and in some cases, like when he does races with students, he'll run the run to keep up with his kids.

The best way to explain why Chris should be recognized is to share some of the talking that Chris walks in his own words:

"If you dare kids to do real stuff that matters, you better be prepared to get out of the way."
“Technology should be like oxygen: ubiquitous, necessary, and invisible.”
"I want kids to be "thoughtful, wise, passionate and kind."
"Schools can be places of great passion where students learn what it means to be scholar-activists, fully invested in authentic work that matters to them today, not someday."

When Chris is not talking the talk and walking the walk, he is writing about it. His blog (http://practicaltheory.org/blog) is a continual source of inspiration to educators, parents, and students around the globe.
