Standard 5: Acting with integrity, fairness, and in an ethical manner:
v A competent school administrator is an educational leader who promotes the success of all students by acting with integrity, fairness, and in an ethical manner.
Ethical practices are difficult to maintain in the day of quick solutions and easy fixes. Too many times, we are shown in the news and actions of the world that everyone is looking for the easy way out. A poster seen in various classrooms really tells the truth: “What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right”. Ethics and fairness are two goals that I strive to maintain within all aspects of my life.
As a competent administrator, I will apply this to how I work within the school. One aspect is how to give feedback to teachers about the profession they have chosen. I plan to attend an Administrator Academy on teacher evaluation to ensure that teachers are reaching their full potential and that the students are receiving the best education possible.
