I have a strong passion for education. I feel much more than a school administrator …I am currently a director of instructional technology and curriculum and instruction. Previously I was a principal. I feel administrators are influential role models who participate in the extracurricular aspects of students’ lives along with teachers. Principal Les Potter of Port Orange, Florida, said in an article for Scholastic that he considers it his job to help parents provide the emotional and academic guidance that reinforce student achievement. I feel very much the same in that we must educate parents and teachers on how to monitor homework, meet with counselors to discuss student progress, ensure that students maintain proper attendance and encourage them to respect teachers, classmates and school property. As a administrator in the 21st century, it is a prime time in fostering students with a foundational education and career readiness path to make them functional, problem solving citizens of society.
