Leadership is the action of leading a group or organization. To be an effective leader one must be honest, trustworthy, and contain a large amount of integrity. The traits and qualities of an effective leader were taught to me during my time in JROTC. JROTC stresses its core values of honor, courage, and commitment to all of its members. Cadet's are expected to uphold these three values in every aspect of what you do as a cadet in this program. When I first entered this program I was a shy and insecure little girl who had no idea what she wanted in life. I started as a squad leader, in charge of about 5 people. I later moved on to a staff position, I currently serve as the Chief of staff. As chief of staff, I help ensure that all officers under
The first domain in the Florida Principals Leadership Standards, Student Achievement, is divided into two separate Standards. The first standard is about Student Learning Results and achieving previously set standards. Out of the many leadership styles that were discussed in class, I felt that the path-goal theory fit the purpose of this standard the best. The implementation of path Goal-theory begins by identifying the objectives to be reached as “The school 's learning goals are based on the state 's adopted student academic standards and the district 's adopted curricula” (“The Florida Principal,” n.d.). My job as a leader would then be to clear out any foreseeable, and unforeseen obstacles so that my pupils can achieve success as
Over the past three decades’ educational leadership has been in search of ways to increase student literacy in urban middle schools in the southeast sections of the District of Columbia. The quest to closing achievement gaps in urban school districts have and will always be an on-going issue for educational leadership (Daly & Chrispells, 2008). Findings from research studies suggest that school leadership accounts for fully one quarter of total school effects on pupils, making it second only to classroom instruction among school-based factors affecting student achievement (Leithwood, Louis, Anderson & Wahlstrom, 2004).
In my junior year of high school, I came to dominate the role of a junior class representative in the English Honors Society, a secretary in Mu Alpha Theta, and a junior class representative in Science Exploration Club. In my senior year, I became the president of Mu Alpha Theta, vice president of English Honors Society, and event coordinator of the FIU Science Club. Due to the difference in hours of commencement for the AAA program and for Dr. Michael Krop, my peers and I could not engage in the activities conducted in our main high school. Thus, through the roles I presided over, I brought back the high school experience that the AAA program
By putting this recommendation into action now, I expect to become more connected to my
At Lampasas High School I show leadership in many ways, like volunteering to answer questions or be the example in class, being part of the National Honor Society, and being a student athlete. I am also in the Gear Up Leadership program at Lampasas High School, where I am pushed to set the best example for others, I am challenged to promote a college and career oriented future. I believe being a good role model is one of the best ways to show leadership. This past year I was chosen by staff at my school for demonstrating leadership, citizenship, and character in my school and my community, to attend American Legion Auxiliary Bluebonnet Girls State. It was such an honor to be able to attend Bluebonnet Girls State where only 500 hundred girls
By taking on leadership roles such as being president of environmental club and public relations of class council, I am a mentor to others all while sharing the same interests and providing opportunities for them to build their own character. Prior to this school year, I was fortunate enough to attend a weeklong event called Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, where I lived there for a week surrounded by young leaders from all over south jersey. In this experience, I learned that being a leader means being understanding of others and their situations. With this experience I was able to bring back what I learned to my own communities like environmental club. Not only do I have to be organize and communicative, but I also have to be a role model to members of a club by showing my own good character. Specifically, in environmental club, I organize and provide events where members can participate in their communities through
After summer break, I returned to Westlake High School for my junior year, feeling as if something was missing. The decision to spearhead the creation of a chapter of the Science National Honor Society (SNHS) at my school arose because of my desire to establish a niche where high school students could express their shared passion for the sciences. The SNHS would provide enlightening scientific activities and opportunities for students, and the Science club would serve as a path to introduce members into the society. I initially proposed the creation of the society in a meeting with the Principal and Board of Education. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school. As part of the proposal, I wrote a concise, detailed document that included tentative guideline of events. In addition, I researched and formulated bylaws with enhanced requirements for admission into the society to fit the standard of high-achieving students at Westlake. I recruited a team of officers to help implement my ideas, and found spirited teachers to be the faculty
Leadership is the ability of one to organize or lead a group of people. A leader should be respectful, a leader is bound to know what goal is attempted to be reached. My favorite leadership quote is by Chris Hadfield, “Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It 's about keeping yourself and people around you focused on a goal and motivated to do the best to achieve goals in life, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences matter greatly. It is about laying the groundwork for others ' success, and finally standing back and letting them shine.” Being a leader doesn’t involve the leader doing all the work and claiming all the credit. Instead the leader helps everyone achieve a common goal.
While attending St Joseph’s College I have taken leadership roles within my community and within the classroom. In my community, I have helped organize two teams to participate in the Breast Cancer Awareness walk and
The standards of a Sterling Scholar, scholarship, citizenship and leadership have been exemplified in the way I have conducted my life through the following examples.
Many posses the commitment to the qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character, but how one uses them shows the core of their disposition. For each of these qualities, there are many traits, useful in a leader, and not. Since it is only my second year as a student at Carlsbad High School, there has not been much time of my being distracted from my school work as I try to be as diligent of a student as possible. However, from time to time, I take a break and do things for the community instead. The students that make up the National Honor Society are extremely dedicated in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character, and I would be very grateful to be a part of the standards.
Likewise, I was never aware of the tremendous amount of happiness and sense of togetherness that comes with seeing the faces of students enjoying our sponsored events and other organizations hearing about our efforts on campus. Being the president of SHAC has truly been a blessing to me and has opened my eyes to my true potential as a leader. I no longer shy away from speaking in front of large groups, question whether or not to share my opinions on topics and believe that there is only one way to successfully accomplish a goal. Although I would love to say that SHAC has helped Brady Health and students here on campus, I know that it is being in SHAC that has truly helped me. I have developed into a person that I would not have recognized during my early days as a college student if it has not been for this leadership role. I am able to stand a bit taller, hold my head a bit higher and speech more confidently and for that I am forever
As a co-leader for the Greater Bethesda AMSA chapter, I work to support the professional goals of the NIH post-baccalaureate fellows through hosting panel discussions, group meetings regarding the professional school application process, and organizing mock interviews. In addition, I organize community and volunteer opportunities such as Kids Enjoy Exercise Now. It is fulfilling to witness students gain valuable knowledge and support while navigating through the application process. Working as an officer for AMSA has taught me the value of being a co-leader, that is working with other leaders to achieve a common goal and how to plan events based on the needs of the student community.
