Educational leadership means doing the right thing for the people we serve. It means being committed to the education of all the students. An educational leader needs to be a committed soul, passionate about creating success in the lives of every student. This is not an 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or August to May commitment, it is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year position.
As an educator, this should be a career-long commitment. To help stay committed,an educational leader needs to develop core values that help one stay focused on the task at hand and guide one through troubled waters. To paraphrase Dr. G. Reed (public presentation, Fall, 2005), we either get better or worse, we never stay the same. We should seek to get better.
