Open Access Graduate Research Paper


School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;


Educational leadership was the goal that I set for myself when I began the Educational Leadership Program. That will continue to be part of my future goals as long as I am in the world of education. Along the way in this program I have had to answer the questions of my peers as well as the questions I had for myself. It is only after all the questions have been answered with confidence and knowledge that the goal will be met.

I look forward to the challenge and I am excited about the prospects ahead. There is so much I have learned and so much I want to try. No person can truly appreciate what this all means unless he/she, too, goes through this process. This process has been exciting because it has been a team of people helping me toward a goal. The end result of this process will come when I am putting a vision to work that involves the education of students, their parents, the surrounding community, but importantly the staff who educate that same school community. It is a vision I know many will be glad to see.
