Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In the ever-changing field of education, the role of a principal is constantly evolving. An effective principal, has a clear vision to lead her school into the future. The ultimate goal of every administrator must be to help each student within the school achieve their potential, and gain success. They must be willing to collaborate with families, staff members, and the community to make their vision a reality. They must set examples through integrity and fairness, and utilize all available resources to help achieve these goals. I believe that a truly effective principal must be a leader of learning, a leader of service, and a leader of change.
