Open Access Graduate Research Paper
One of the fundamental elements of society is education. From the earliest stages of my educational program I've experienced a desire to be an influential part of this process. I have been blessed with a stable, loving family life and an educational experience filled with instructional leaders that instilled in me a desire to learn. To be a small piece of a child's life in this same sense would be the ultimate high for me. Green (1987) pointed out that effective, quality leaders possess a conscience of leadership. "By conscience I mean simply the many ways we have to be critical of ourselves and others in the performance of our life tasks" (p. 110). Barth ( 1990) described a "community of learners" (p. 513) in which each member brings with him or her an individual conscience depending upon background and experience. Green (1987) suggested that this conscience is guided by the "voices of craft, membership, duty, memory, and imagination" (p.110).
