Open Access Graduate Research Paper


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


My goal in education is obvious: students will develop their own presence of learning. The positive experience they have in school will help them grow into world-class learners. As an educator I empower my students, for at least one day, to know that this is their day to be special. Then I repeat that process for all of them the next day, the next month, and the following years.

Leadership is easy to talk about but difficult to implement. A leader does not solve other people's problems for them. I do believe that a problem will no longer exist, if the problem holder or group has already brainstormed some ideas that may be evaluated in place of it. Why ask people to do a task and then tell them how to do it? I want to be able, within reason, to have faith in and empower my staff, administrative team, or committee members to think outside the box.
