Executive Director- Jason Bagley
When asked to introduce myself for the SCFLTA blog, I suddenly developed writer’s block. I am not one to “toot my own horn”, and prefer to stay in the background.
My name is Dr. Jason Bagley, and I currently have the privilege of serving as the Executive Director for SCFLTA. I am also a high school French teacher, and work part time as a STAMP rater and International Baccalaureate (IB) examiner. On a personal level, I enjoy traveling, reading, sporting events, and the outdoors!
If I had to discuss my type of leadership, I would certainly say that I am a servant leader. I enjoy doing for others, and have a passion for helping teachers become the best that they can be at their craft! I consider it my responsibility to go get information and bring it back to and share with my team.
I enjoy staying current with things that are happening in our field, especially with technology and leadership. Currently teacher leadership is a big focus, and I believe that you do not have to have a title or be in an office to be a leader. Some leaders serve what may seem like small roles in their schools or departments while others may be at every conference sharing their expertise with colleagues. There is a place for everyone, and each and every teacher has a unique set of gifts and skill sets that makes them unique and valuable! I encourage everyone to self-reflect on what their strengths and talents are. Some may have the gift of making connections with everyone they meet, others may have great organizational skills, while others may be dreamers and have great ideas. When you put those talents together, great things can happen!
If I can be of service to you, your department, school, or district, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
On that note, please be aware of the following changes to contact information!
Effective immediately, my email address is changing. Any SCFLTA related questions or contact with me will go to email@example.com
