School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
My philosophy of educational leadership has developed from the experiences I have had over the course of my lifetime. It began with the values taught to me by my parents and has continued to build to the present. My parents provided a caring and secure family life for my four siblings and me. Neither my mother nor my father had the benefit of much formal education. Neither was able to graduate from high school because they had the obligation to contribute income to their families during the depression. Perhaps the hardships they lived through were the basis of the values they instilled in their children. We grew up understanding the importance of hard work, responsibility, and pride in a job well done. My parents taught us that education was the promise for our future. They instilled a belief that working hard in school and doing well would be the way to a better and more fulfilling life.
