Personal Leadership Credo

These are the leadership values and guiding principles that I will live by.  I may stumble in my drive to live up to them, but I will always hold myself 100% accountable to each value/principle.  I will evaluate my daily actions against these principles and I will ask my teams, peers and leaders to do the same.


  • Vision and Leadership

My goal is to make our students successful.  My purpose in life is to create an environment that promotes high caliber learning.  I will do whatever it takes to remove excuses from the lack of learning.  I will create an environment where you can speak openly without fear of retribution as long as your speech is not harmful to others.


  • Trustworthiness

I will earn your trust by being a good listener and remaining confidential in personal matters.  I will be honest and complete in my communications.  I will not hesitate to make the tough decisions although they may not be popular.  I will use reliable information when making decisions.  I will have a personal relationship with the staff and faculty of our school.


  • Responsibility and Accountability 

I will accept the responsibility for my shortcomings.  I will not place blame on others.  I will be a constant learner.  I will follow through with my commitments.  I will know my limitations and will ask others for help.  I will hold myself accountable for the results of the students at Roosevelt Elementary.  I will take the responsibility for the success or the shortcomings of our instructional program.


  • Caring and Fairness

I will treat everyone with fairness.  I will not show preferential treatment to others, but I will have individual consideration.  I will act with consistency in all that I do.  I will demonstrate empathy by being there during difficult times.
