1 MTP Quality Marist Teacher Project If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader. John Quincy Adams MARIST COLLEGE CANBERRA

2 As human beings we are called to the fullness of life through living our lives according to the values expressed in the Gospels. Marcellin Champagnat felt called to address a particular need at a particular time in history. His personal experience of life and his upbringing led him to realise his mission was to make Jesus known and loved among the young, especially the most neglected. As Marist educators we have a share in this mission, responding to the needs of today s young people. We are sowers of hope, sowers of the Good News, embracing the characteristics of presence, simplicity, family spirit, love of work and following in the way of Mary. In response to the document, The Marist Boy we find creative ways to develop each student as a: person community member learner contributor to society. We are all called to exercise professional and pastoral leadership in our role as educators. We participate in ongoing professional learning to improve our personal competence to seek the most appropriate methods and strategies for educating contemporary youth, and to deepen our understanding of the specific character of Catholic education through a Marist spirituality. We are all leaders in the classroom, in House Groups, in the playground, on excursions, on retreats, on camps, and in co-curricular activities. We are also role models as leaders in the community, for the staff and students we serve. Informed by the values inherent in the Gospel and by the characteristics of Marist education, the staff of Marist College Canberra uphold our Core Values of faith, love, justice, compassion and hospitality. Champagnat s mission continues through us: What a privileged vocation we have as Marist educators, Brothers and Laypeople, women and men, young and old, called to be Champagnats for this younger generation. With all the passion and dedication for mission which fired his everyday life, we in our times also choose to follow the same path of love, hope and service together in the Spirit. We have a shared mission and we are all leaders. 2

3 Background A Charter of Leadership was developed, recognising that we are all leaders. This Charter stemmed from the Strategic Plan and flows from the recommendation that the College commit to: sustain and extend the school s capacity for effective leadership and governance. With this in mind, guidelines were developed to assist all at Marist College Canberra to recognise their leadership potential, to encourage staff to integrate and promote the Marist Core Values in their professional and personal lives, to have an agreed set of leadership values, attributes and practices and to provide a foundation for reflection, review and development. In keeping with this commitment, the Charter of Leadership defined that: Leadership at Marist: flows from the Marist charism and the College Core Values is an opportunity for all staff and students is based on respect, recognising the worth of each person provides an environment that enriches the learning and development opportunities for staff and students to improve student learning outcomes embraces reflection and ongoing development leads to action and empowers others to act is concerned with the transformation of individuals and thus of our community. Based on these guidelines, effective leaders: demonstrate strong professional values and ethics: integrity, flexibility, fairness, honesty, reliability believe in, support, affirm, inspire, motivate, encourage and empower others are committed to open, transparent communication promote excellence value and develop effective learning teams, sharing their knowledge and expertise take responsibility for their actions model a commitment to life-long learning are reflective, seeking advice to review, refine, evaluate and develop their leadership and pedagogical skills build leadership capacity in self and in others. 3

4 The Quality Marist Teacher The development of the Quality Marist Teacher (QMT) flows from these guidelines and is defined across a set of five Domains. These Domains emerged from our research and are our key defining criteria on which to build a reflective culture for teachers to develop their capacity as leaders. Everyone is a leader. As leaders we are responsible for ourselves in the first place before we are responsible for leading others. That is why we believe the core component of our framework is Being from the inner flows the outer. We have identified the key domains that we believe provide a framework for development and transformation not only of self but of our community. The Quality Marist Teacher is an effective leader classified within the following five Domains TRANSFORMING DOING BEING RELATING LEARNING 4
