George Couros is currently an “Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Consultant”, as well as the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset“. Formerly, he was the Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning with Parkland School Division, located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada, and has over 17 years of experience as an educator, in a myriad of roles from K-12. He is passionate about distributed leadership within his division, and believes that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders, will help to ensure that they meet the best needs of all children.
Personally, he is someone who is passionate about all of the things that he does. He was lucky enough to marry his best friend (Paige Couros), who is an elementary school teacher (and the best mom in the world!) who always keeps him grounded and reminds him how complex a teacher’s job is. They welcomed their beautiful daughter Kallea into the world in August of 2016. He believes that we must continuously “sharpen the saw” by taking part in other pursuits.
