Jones, David W. W.
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n5 p40-42 May 2011
The main reason individuals enter into the education profession is that someone in their lives has influenced them in such an extreme manner that it has led them to enter the vocation of education. It is evident that there are leaders within the education profession. Individuals have proved their leadership ability by involvement in their schools, churches, local community organizations, and national affiliations. These same individuals have shown their passion for their profession--as can be seen in the students they serve. In this article, the author posits that educators need to develop their leadership skills, too, because what they do in and out of the classroom has impact on the learning and development of their students.
