In order to address ongoing disproportionate outcomes amidst an increasingly diverse student population, DMPS is engaged in a district wide effort to speak with a common language and understanding around Cultural Proficiency.
I have been a member of the staff for five years now. My duties as a member are planning and teaching an innovative lesson once a week. I teach them every Sunday. The children I teach range from the ages of three to twelve. When I arrange these lessons out I have the role of a teacher in school. This prepares myself for my future because I am going to college to secure a degree in education for elementary students, once I graduate high school. These are examples of how I contribute to various teams and a small

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
The children in a school are valued, with an environment that fully encourages and celebrates their learning and progression and how they are developing. The provision of a safe and secure learning environment for all its pupils should be provided through recognizing the importance of welcoming diversity and equal opportunities.
Research on Cesar Chavez helps me because it gives me information about his life and what amazing things he did to help his people. Cesar Chavez was important to me because of the way he talked to bring his people up and make them stronger, he said “We draw strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to lired” ().. To me he was a hero because he made his people feel like humans and he always speaked up for them and made them feel equal, Cesar Chavez said “The fight is never about grapes or lettuce, It is always about people.”
What are the primary issues in this scenario and what information is Principal Miller likely to need in order to demonstrate appreciation for and sensitivity to the diversity in the school community?
IDEA OR PRACTICE BEING USED: The district worked collaboratively with teachers, parents, and leaders to develop an afterschool program to help underpriviliged students who may not have resources at home to help with education or who may need extra help with learning. Students are also provided food and activities that promote self-awareness, leadership qualities, and physical/extracurricular activities that they wouldn 't have access to otherwise. It also created programs that bring students and their families together to show students they are a part of their success. All of the students ' diverse cultures are celebrated.
Another challenge the principal might face if finding time to listen to the opinions of the students because he is extremely busy.
When reading and listening to lectures I was struck by the information presented in part two of the Jossey-Bass Reader on Educational Leadership: Moral Leadership. I believe this stemmed from three key ideas: trust, relationships, and business.
Presently there are U.S. citizens living in Mexico that must cross the border every day to receive their formal education. Since, they are not Mexican citizens like their parents or other family members they don’t qualify for public education in Mexico. Therefore, Mexican-Americans must make the descent of crossing the border to receive an education. However, this legal migration for education has many problems. First off, different border regions have different rules and regulations when it comes to the migration of students Las Paloma’s-Columbus, Mexicali-Calexico, and El Paso- Juarez deal with the influx of their diverse student body in many different ways.

Critical Race theory includes concepts of color blindness, unmarked whiteness, segregation, white supremacy and many other sub-categories that may be seen as a marginalization to people of color. Christopher Riley and Nancy Ettlinger conducted a study in Columbus, Ohio correlating to the Critical Race Theory. Klaeido High School in Ohio proved to be the ideal site because initially this school was predominantly black and white. New job opportunities arose in this community through policies changes that aided refugees with job placements. The community therefore had an influx of new residents such as and El Salvadorans; Mexicans and Samoans. This created a lot of tension in the school showing a program was needed to address multiculturalism. An after school program was created to teach the students about the different cultures. Later these program was included as part of history class due to low participation in the after school program.
Gifted learners are a distinct group of students with special needs from the general population students. Gifted learners from migrant populations are no different. Migrant learners face continuous challenges that may interfere with academic success.
