Leadership Standards

I will reflect upon the tenets of leadership (The Texas Principal Evaluation & Support System) as described by the state of Texas and the National Standards. These standards establish what defines an instructional leader on paper. I am committed to going above and beyond to apply the leadership standards – in my role as an aspiring administrator –  to what campus leaders do each day.
