Principals and educators are challenged with meeting the increased demands of teaching and learning, which becomes difficult in environments filled with negative undercurrents, such as poverty, teacher satisfaction, salary, and instruction. Administrators must instill passion in teachers and provide effective leadership to motivate teachers to engage and energize students. The primary focus of this study was to determine how modeling instructional strategies by principals influence teachers’ implementation of strategies that promote greater student engagement and learning. Sustaining teachers’ passion for teaching and providing educators with the motivation to engage students in lessons through effective leadership and modeling were addressed in this research.
