According to Fullan (2001), the more complex society gets, the more sophisticated leadership must become. As society evolves, so must leadership. Leaders must be able to work under complicated and uncertain circumstances. At its core, I believe a great school has a strong leader. Great schools are like winning teams with leaders that have a clear, well-defined moral purpose, intimate knowledge of the skills of staff and students and an understanding of the change that will need to occur to achieve the desired outcome. All principals want their school to have successful students. Like the fans of teams who second-guess a coaching decision, teachers have wondered about the decisions of some by principals, which leads to resistance. It’s an easy thing to do, to coach from the stands, but the reality of the game is much more complicated. A principal’s job is a lonely one that demands a dynamic leader with a tough exterior yet is personable, resourceful and caring. There are five main components to leadership that foster positive and effective change: moral purpose, understanding change, developing relationships, knowledge building, and coherence making. Moral Purpose
Fullan (2011) defines moral purpose as ‘acting with the intention of making a positive difference in the lives of employees, customers, and society as a whole.’ He also states that leadership is needed for problems that do not have easy answers. Throughout this course, we looked at two documentaries that followed around three different principals. The principals in The Principal Story and in North Grand both had a moral purpose. In the end, the purpose was to make a difference in the lives and education of their students. According to Fullan, the most crucial part is what happens in the process of reaching the end. Tresa Dunbar, principal of Nash Elementary, took interest in several different aspects in the middle of the process. First, she was concerned with student growth. She wanted to ensure that students were getting the best education possible. She provided a struggling teacher with support, however when the teacher continued to fail with the added support, the teacher was let go. Her reason behind this was for her students. She wanted to ensure that here students were getting a quality education, and when that specific staff member was unable to provide it, she had no choice other than to find one that could. She was also a big proponent of professional development in order to ensure that her teachers were receiving up to date information and knowledge so that they could provide the students with relevant knowledge. Kerry Purcell, the principal at Harvard Park, was more focused on student morale and student test scores. Purcell encouraged parent involvement and motivated her students on a personal level. She was visibly upset when she had to move to the middle school, because she had such a personal and deep connection with her students. She felt that if she made the students feel good about themselves and confident, that test scores would increase. The principal at North Grand, Dr. Sunny Ayala, was more concerned about drop out rates. In Chicago, the high school drop out rate is 52%. Her overall focus was to empower the students, and she did so by creating a staff and administration that assisted her in working towards this goal. She focused on data and professional development in order to assist her in keeping her students enrolled. She set a goal to have 98% of her students graduate, and she reached this goal due to her focus and love for her students. As an aspiring principal, I feel my moral purpose will be to have a positive effect on my staff, students and families. I will want to lead my school with confidence and caring that focuses on meeting the building goals and maintaining positive relationships to achieve the goals. My goals will align with the vision of the district and school for the greater good of all. My moral purpose will be...

The golden ratio, also known as the divine proportion, golden mean, or golden section, is a number often encountered when taking the ratios of distances in simple geometric figures such as the pentagon, pentagram, decagon and dodecahedron. It is denoted , or sometimes .
The designations "phi" (for the golden ratio conjugate ) and "Phi" (for the larger quantity ) are sometimes also used (Knott), although this usage is not necessarily recommended.
The term "golden section" (in German, goldener Schnitt or der goldene Schnitt) seems to first have been used by Martin Ohm in the 1835 2nd edition of his textbook Die Reine Elementar-Mathematik (Livio 2002, p. 6). The first known use of...

Career and Leadership Goals
As I embarked into this higher education path I wanted nothing more than to be an administrator of an Elementary or Middle School in Texas. I was able to even envision myself in the school district I currently work in working in school administration at one of the schools I have taught at. I was fortunate on my internship year to have the position of being the instructional technology facilitator and was able to help more in depth with the administrators of my campus and learn the in and outs of the administration side of the school. Looking at all of this and having experienced it I am now thinking I am leaning towards more working towards becoming a department head or maybe the head of a academic department for the district. I am hoping the first step to this will be to become the department head for fifth grade on my campus and then moving towards becoming the English Language Arts and Reading department head. Eventually over time I hope to move into a more Reading Specialist position for a campus or even possibly a...
...recommend for the Denver Airport Project. Please choose a combination (two or three) of the eight leadership styles presented in the Thompson textbook (Chapter 11: Leadership: Managing the Paradox). Please note that you are to also use three other sources from the internet or the DeVry online library. All sources must be cited.
After reading the Denver Airport Project out of the eight leadership styles I believe active leadership, task leadership, and transformational leadership would be the three styles I would propose for the project. All three styles are team oriented towards reaching the success of the project. With out a close, hard working teams the project will not be successful and with these three styles the teams will work harder and more successfully.
Active leadership style has the leader more team oriented and more actively engaged with the team. This gives the appearance of the phrase “Leading from the front” which is used to compliment a leader for working with his team to accomplish the mission. Active leaders are also more in-tuned with their teams members strengths and weaknesses. This type of leadership would be a successful fit with the Denver Airport Project because of the amount of time and man power that will be put forth for the project making the team to grow close and depend on each other to make deadlines.
Task leadership focuses on accomplishing...
