Open Access Graduate Research Paper
At some point in the near future, I hope to become the administrator of an elementary school. As I have continued the course work that will eventually qualify me for this position, a number of questions have surfaced in regards to this end goal. What type of role model will the principal need to be to the students, staff, and the community as a whole? What would the principal, as educational leader, want to accomplish? How will the teachers and principal work together to arrive at these decisions? And, will I be able to manage the day to day complexities of running an elementary school building? I hope to use this opportunity to reflect on these questions. Some of the areas that will be considered are my values, goals, beliefs, and visions and how these will affect a first year principal.
