03 Apr We Need Better Principals
Great leadership is at the helm of any successful endeavor. This is certainly true for education.
I pride myself on being a great classroom leader. My students know I run the ship and we’ve built a relationship of mutual respect, so they gladly follow my lead. They trust me to have their best interests in mind and to steer them in the right direction.
My students know I have extremely high expectations, but they aren’t expected to simply rise to the occasion. I promise them that I’m there to ensure they are taught the skills needed to meet and eventually exceed those expectations. I may be the leader, but I am not successful unless those whom I lead are successful as well.
A school, just like a classroom, needs a strong leader.
