I believe that an educational leader must walk into any position with something of a dual personality. He or she must be able to examine and interpret the minutiae of research data and best practice, to handle the day-to-day crises of students, staff, and a community, and to work with such details as schedules and commitment of resources. On the other hand, the educational leader must also be able to continually keep sight of the larger context within which all these details exist. And finally, the inspired and inspiring educational leader never ceases efforts to bring the external and internal together both personally and organizationally.
In sum, my vision of educational leadership involves personally cultivating depth of understanding, seeking breadth of experience, and acting with quiet humility in the service of education specifically and humanity generally.
