Abstract

An educational leader is the key element in any educational organization, and likewise the principal is the pivot around which the whole success of the school building is dependent. In this paper, I would like to express my views as an aspiring educational leader--my values, beliefs, and educational philosophies that I would practice· as I enter the field of school administration. As I sat to write this reflective paper, the question that my friends often asked me was, "Why do you want to choose a career in education?" This question kept recurring in my mind. The only simple answer that I had was that I love being with children. It gave me great pleasure and satisfaction when I was able to work with them and help them in their personal development. However, now I know it is not only my love for children that inspired me to choose a career in education, but more than that, it is the importance of education that is stressed so much in every country: More so, it is a crucial need in my oppressed country that is under illegal subjugation, where even the basic education is denied. If there is any education, it is only indoctrination of communist idealogy.
