I am confident that the material that I have learned and the activities that I have participated in will allow me to enter an assistant principal role with knowledge and skill to take on the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an assistant principal. The greatest strength that I will take into the role is my ability to help others.

A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better.

Through the educational experiences I receive from the MSW program I plan to contribute a professional, eager, and hardworking student in pursuit of a higher education. The educational experiences I received through my BSW program opened me up the scope of social work and provided me with the basic needs of a generalist social worker practicing in any field. The program was very student-centered to all my educational needs and this trait passed through me as I became engaged in an active community.
