Philosophy of Leadership
A principal is the educational leader. A leader can only be as effective as the staff they lead. I believe in collaborative leadership, since teachers are the subject matter experts in their fields. It would be presumptuous and arrogant of me to believe that I know everything that an entire staff of teachers have taken years to acquire.  Collaboration, hard work and a central motivational factor; do what is educationally prudent for the students, is what makes a staff, administrative team, and a student body, “[B]ig enough to challenge, small enough to care.”
