Education faculty Terri Green, Paul Young, PhD and Debra Dunning, PhD recently had an article published in the Principal Navigator, the magazine of the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators. The article “Grit To Teach” discussed the need to harden aspiring teachers’ soft skills. Soft skills, also known as life skills, dispositions, or non-cognitive skills, include self-control, persistence, social awareness, relationship development, and passion for long term goals. The article summarized a survey, administered by OAESA, which collected qualitative and quantitative responses to seventeen questions. The questions probed a variety of factors to determine what most influenced principals’ perceptions about attitude, mindset, initiative, perseverance, social-emotional well-being, communication skills, and attendance compared to GPA, test scores, portfolio, and traditional references. When principals were asked to summarize in one word what they most looked for in new teachers the answer was PASSION. Dunning, Green, and Young have created a weekly Lunch and Learn Seminar Series called “So You Think You Can Teach” to harden the soft skill traits of their aspiring educators.
