Abstract

The role of a leader is comparable to a circle. There are so many sides, they seem to run together with no definition of where one ends and another begins. What I believe about leadership and the roles of being a reflective practitioner, a leader in educational change, a leader in improvement of learning for students and adults, and a leader of service all share importance in a well-rounded, successful, educational leader.

In order to lead a school with success the leader must be able to play many roles at the same time. Not only do leaders need to be managers of the building, they must also, more importantly, be educational leaders. Educational leaders must be reflective practitioners, leaders in educational change, leaders in improvement of learning for students and adults, and leaders of service.
