Abstract

In Supervision and Evaluation of Instruction, we constructed a top ten list of desirable leadership behaviors: 1. Open door policy 2. Empathetic 3. Confident 4. Reassuring 5. Knowledgeable 6. Energetic 7. Consistent 8. Patient 9. Humorous 10. Optimistic. I believe that all of these are vital links to aspire toward, however, knowledge is the one attribute I needed to focus on.

Our society is ever shifting and we will always be in the catch-up mode. Schools have long been a pillar of strength in communities. School is where you grow up, mature, and develop an identity. This is not going to change. Students are still going to get all of these things from schools; it might look different than what mom and dad experienced, but it will happen.

As a principal, my job is to make sure these things happen as smoothly as possible. My job is also to have everything in place, so that every child that comes through the door has what he or she needs to get a good education.
