Philosophy of Education Administration

Dr. Lamont SmithI believe highly effective educational leadership addresses three major tenets, of which motivating students and staff to do their best is priority.  Next, relationships must be deepened internally and with external partnerships to enhance services.  Finally, there must be an ongoing focus on common goals of keeping student achievement, social emotional  health and safety at the forefront.  These tenets allow the schools to excel.  When the school community performs at the highest level, excellence is produced.  Excellence does not mean perfect, but it does mean first-class.  We will approach our work with excellence every day.  My philosophy is connected to an anonymous quote, “Excellence is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, skillful execution and the vision to see obstacles as opportunities.”  To have a first-class school system, our staff and students must have excellent resources. Every campus and department should approach the day with bringing a first-class experience to the people we serve.
