Transparency leads to Trust
One of my core beliefs and values as an educator and future administrator is the power of authenticity. As a campus leader, it’s important that I model what I expect of others. My desire for others’ success must be revealed through my actions and decisions as a leader. There should not be any secrets and closed-door meetings should be limited to ensure that all stakeholders buy into and understand the purpose at hand. “The Why” should be clear and at least understood by all. Tangible acts demonstrate trust. As cliché as it may be, actions do speak louder than words. I firmly believe that transparency leads to a meaningful trust — and represents exactly how I plan to earn the trust of my colleagues as a school administrator.
