Open Access Graduate Research Paper


School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;


I believe the most profound experiences have been watching my mentor in her administrative style and comparing that to the style of my current and past administrators. Somewhere along the way I have taken elements from each one of their administrative styles, and shaped it into a style of my own. I believe I will be an excellent leader, largely due to the tremendous experiences along the way. I am excited to think about the successes and challenges I will encounter as I guide leadership capacity, and shape the culture of the people I lead.

This paper will be a great tool in focusing my energy as I begin my administrative journey. It will guide my vision as I have established those components I feel are essential in creating a superior school: structure of learning, student achievement, and parental involvement. As I see it, these three components encompass a wide array of other leadership roles that I will fulfill for the school I lead.
