We kicked off our Sept with this mantra and a question to all staff: 'No burnout. Ever. What do we need to change?' Openness and honesty is crucial. No elephants! For us it's about creating and maintaining systems that allow leaders to lead, teachers to teach, kids to learn.

Notice that Macbeth is rather missing the point here: the prophecy can "commence in a truth" and still be harmful or treacherous to him. Maybe his ambition is blinding him to a clear reading. Not for the last time.
