Hey there!

I'm Dr. Shira

I created Purpose Inspired Education (PIE), as the approach to learning I long needed as a high school teacher, principal of pre-K to 8th grade schools, university instructor, author and speaker, and most recently owner of my very own childcare center and preschool.

In more than a quarter century leading schools, I've recognized something I sensed since the beginning of my career, but couldn't articulate clearly until recently. Great education is grounded in a core purpose.

I've transformed my school, and have supported other educators to transform their schools, nonprofits, and social impact businesses. Once embracing the Purpose Inspired Education (PIE) approach, educators dramatically increase their impact, focused on what actually matters most.

The course includes:

Lesson One:
Your Path

Schools have long been accused of being slow to change. And yet, the past few epoch years, adapting to pandemic and its aftermath, have brought massive, rapid transformation.

We've shown we can adapt quickly when required to. Imagine what's possible if we choose the change we want to see in our schools and in our world.

Supplement or replace traditional vision, mission, core values & strategic plans with an agile & responsive leadership approach enabling you to  excel in leading your team through ongoing improvement efforts.

Lesson Two:
Your Purpose

With the unrelenting demands facing educators, it's hard to remain focused on what will make the most significant positive impact.  

Intentional focus on what truly matters supports students and staff in the present, while setting a foundation for  long term success.  

Gain clarity on what is truly most significant and direct your energy and resources to make rapid progress in the ways that matter most.  

Lesson Three:
Your Vision & Implementation

Leaders often fall short either in their vision or in their implementation.

When you combine vision and implementation, grounded in purpose, you become a far more inspirational and effective leader.

Overcome limitations and reignite joy by intentionally blurring the distinction between vision and implementation, remaining focused on what truly matters most. 

Lesson Four:
Your Compass

While ambitious goals often inspire us, they can at times feel burdensome, increasing our stress as we face obstacles and fail to make progress at the speed we anticipated.

Rather than thinking of our goals and strategic plan as a roadmap, we can imagine a GPS, recalibrating and showing us new ways forward when obstacles appear.

By focusing on milestones, and the next steps to take toward those milestones, we can limit overwhelm and adapt quickly to changing circumstances.

Lesson  Five:
Your Culture

Lose focus on cultivating positive culture, even briefly, and there will often be a rapid decline in morale.

The good news is, you can focus cultivate a thriving culture through the tasks already on your plate, without having to take on any additional responsibilities.

By placing purpose at the core of all you do, you'll transform your current tasks & responsibilities into the keys to positive transformation.

Lesson Six:
Your Capacity

With the many demands on you and your people, its a challenge to find the time and the energy to take professional growth, learning, and development seriously.

Professional learning can be an organic outcome of the positive change we want to see for our students and for our schools.

Bring a playful spirit to professional learning with choice for educators on how you'll all learn, grow, and expand capacity to make a positive impact.

 


Still wondering if this approach really works?


“The compassionate & visionary tone Shira sets motivates me. The nuts & bolts & how-to's of running a school were all a learning process and shook my confidence frequently, but Shira helped me to see my values were intact & created a strong foundation for my pursuits."


   – Shawna Thompson


"In the time I have been working with Shira we've created a space where I can implement my dreams & overcome any mindset obstacles that may come in my way. Shira is a creative sounding board and has created a creative think tank with other educators who are fostering visions to custom design new innovations & reach the world."

What you want is within reach, friend

You just have to grab it. I’ve taken my years of experience and turned it into a system you can use to dramatically improve the quality of your school, grounded in what matters most to you. The approach is fully customizable so it works without you having to sacrifice what makes you unique.

In fact, I’m going to help you gain greater clarity on what it is that makes you unique. But most importantly... this system takes out all the guesswork in leading with vision and purpose.

You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have something amazing to offer your students and the field of education. You wouldn’t be here if you already had a strategy that WORKED, making it possible for you to have the massive impact that is within you to contribute.

That's exactly why this approach is vital. You have students to serve. You have important contributions to offer. Let’s make sure you can move forward with the vision and purpose already within you.

Cool? Cool!
