My educational philosophy centers on the belief that all students can and will learn at or above their present grade level. Even though all students are capable of learning, all students do not have the same learning styles or the same intrinsic motivation to learn. As an educational leader, it is my essential duty to ensure that there is equity and equality in every single classroom so that all students have the ability to succeed. Regardless of your area code or zip code, students deserve equity. Expectations will not be lowered for outcomes!

Moreover, it is important to be a life-long learner and to continually strive for improvement. I believe that the school should reflect the aspirations of the community. I believe in creating a strategic plan with all stakeholders to ensure that the community has a voice and to promote connectivity. As an educational leader, it is important to lead with your own voice. My actions will always align with the school district’s organizational beliefs. As an educational leader, I am not afraid to bring the community into our work. I believe that every single child, family, and community deserves my accelerated sense of urgency.

Lastly, I believe in laying the foundation of building and sustaining a positive culture. This begins with hiring around the district’s core beliefs as a culture and holding employees accountable for these ever important beliefs. All stakeholders will have clarity of my overall vision and purpose. When it comes to education, the process is often the product, and I will continue to learn as I lead.
