Abstract

I believe that the role of the principal is vital in creating the workplace and learning community necessary to prepare students for the future. The principal serves many roles including communicator and leader. I know that I possess the skills necessary to fulfill these roles and effectively move a district forward. My vision for the future is not to use a top-down approach in leading a school, but a broad-based participation approach. The school in which I work will strive to enhance leadership in all teachers, form a community of lifelong learners, and grow and reflect individually as professionals. I realize that the challenges that lie ahead of me will be demanding and constantly changing. But most importantly, the challenges will be rewarding. Becoming an effective and successful elementary principal provides the opportunity to touch the lives of many children.
