Professional Objective

I aim to build and sustain reciprocal family and community partnerships and leverage those partnerships to cultivate inclusive, caring and culturally responsive school communities. Developing trust and create a sense of transparency and shared purpose with parents, staff, community members and students is also one of my prime objective, as it provides opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of and sensitive to their individual needs. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.

As an educational facilitator I also intent to offer professional development opportunities and support services to teachers, as well as create an environment where teachers are able to experiment and innovate. As a visionary, I intent in providing momentum and direction not only for school leaders but for each and every member of the community of schools. Basically as a teacher at heart; a teacher of my students, my children I believe success is achieved when a leader generate inspiration, motivation and excitement among students and that is exactly what I as a Principal would do for I strongly believe true learning goes far beyond a curriculum. With this objective in mind, I have confidence that we could win a better future for our posterity. Obviously Winners don’t do different things; they do things differently.
