I believe educators are responsible for providing an environment that allows learning to take place.  This means the schools must be safe, orderly, well-funded, and smoothly run.  Opportunities must exist for students to excel.   I believe the schools are "owned" by the community.  This means that all stakeholders have a voice in the education of our children.  As principal, I must develop a vision that combines the viewpoints of all stakeholders and presents a focused vision and direction for our school.
