Open Access Graduate Research Paper


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


Educational administration is an appealing career opportunity for me because it will allow me to put into action two core values that I learned in my early years - we all deserve the chance to succeed and that hard work toward a lofty goal is what leads to cherished success. I believe that if l continue to develop four personal characteristics, my chances of being an ; effective administrator will be greatly enhanced. First and foremost, I must act with integrity at all times. Second, I must present an organized approach to my school activities. Third, I must be a flexible problem-solver and be willing to think outside the box. Fourth, I must work collaboratively with others when attempting to better the school.

Continual development of these characteristics will allow me to lead a school in a way that brings respect and honor to all students, faculty and parents. I will strive to create a school whose culture supports highly motivated teachers who seek out the hard to reach students. I will help all students recognize their near limitless potential and give them the tools to chase the realization of that potential.
