What do you see as the major issues the Illinois Principals Association should be addressing, and how do you foresee your role as IPA President-Elect, in providing leadership to address these issues? Consistent with the mission of the Illinois Principals Association to develop, support, and advocate for innovative educational leaders, as President-Elect, I plan to engage and collaborate with the varied members of our organization so we can further promote and celebrate the outstanding work of our schools. Each day, on behalf of students, staff, and communities, our members meet and exceed the expectations set for our profession. Through this work, regardless of the issues and challenges presented, we maintain a focus on helping each student achieve at the highest levels. And with the continued commitment of the Illinois Principals Association, we will be sure each leader is celebrated and recognized for this outstanding work.
