Great presentation.

I found this webinar somewhat negative and kind of depressing. The focus was more on the problems that on solutions.

Any suggestions for teachers wanting to take on a more administrative role? Other than becoming chair of a department and speaking with administration directly? I think my school could really benefit from having an administrator who deals solely with professional development for teachers.
