The Culture of Teaching and Learning
“A school administrator is an educational leader who promotes the success of all students by
advocating, nurturing, and sustaining a school culture and instructional program conducive to student
learning and staff professional growth”
Personal Statement: Leaders are responsible for creating, nurturing, and sustaining a culture of
collaboration, trust, learning, and high expectations. In order to accomplish this they must create a
comprehensive and rigorous curriculum in a personalized and motivating learning environment. The
leader must also supervise the instruction and develop assessment and accountability systems to monitor
student progress and achievement.
