PERSONAL PROFILE The position I seek is a school administrator preferably a principal or assistant-principal. The personal qualities that will contribute to my success in Educational Leadership and distinguishes my character as a person is the joy which comes from helping others succeed and overcoming their struggles giving them hopes for a better tomorrow. I have been a Senior Pastor for over ten years working with young people, counseling them in making better decisions for their lives, and helping those set goals to achieve. I am also a real estate broker license in Connecticut and Massachusetts. A former educator of ten years teaching social studies in a middle school setting, I left educational teaching to fulfill a call on my life; traveled the world preaching and teaching the gospel to a multicultural world who received it gladly.
Now that I have returned to education and received my masters degree I understand educational leadership is the criteria for balanced leadership, importance of ethical behavior as leaders with management and strategies for forming an organizational work culture for staff and students to function and achieve in, and I am very ready to do my part in making this a reality in the school I am chosen for.
