Re-imagining Independent Schools: An Innovator’s Journey
Board Chair/Clerk & Head of School Dinner & Dialogue
Tim Fish, Chief Innovation Officer, NAIS
Uncertainty is our new narrative, driven by disruptors that challenge an often familiar and comfortable status quo. But flux offers independent schools enormous opportunities to innovate, reimagine, and fully realize their missions. In this session, Tim Fish will look at what needs to be in place for whole school innovation to succeed and will equip participants with new capabilities to help build a future-wise school.
About our Presenter
Tim Fish, Chief Innovation Officer, National Association of Independent Schools (DC)
Tim Fish was appointed as the first Chief Innovation Officer at NAIS in July, 2016. He has deep roots in the independent school community and a long history at McDonogh School (Maryland). Most recently, he was the school’s associate headmaster and served as interim CFO. During his time at McDonogh, he also oversaw the K-12 admissions and financial aid process, the academic program, facility development, technology, diversity, and strategic planning.
Fish was also the founding president and CEO of the FolioCollaborative, a nonprofit community of more than 125 schools around the world focused on working together to build a flexible faculty/staff development process that is grounded in strong relationships and meaningful conversations. From 2011 to 2013, Fish managed the growth of the collaborative, seeing it through from its start-up roots to become the full-fledged community of independent schools that it now is.
In his role at NAIS, Tim leads the information technology team, ensuring its focus on both infrastructure and innovation, as well as the ed tech/teaching and learning and the DASL research teams. He is also responsible for creating processes and frameworks for discovering new solutions and approaches to old problems, nurturing practices for creative thinking throughout the organization, and monitoring research and development in the field to spot trends in innovation and supplement research findings in the K-12 education landscape.
Tim is the co-author of the book
Leadership and Technology at Independent Schools
. He started his career as a 4th-grade teacher and has served as a founder, board member, administrator and consultant for a variety of education- and technology-related schools, organizations, and companies. Tim has an undergraduate degree from St. Francis University and a Masters from George Mason University.
