A Network Connecting School Leaders From Around The Globe
We envision this as a community for current Ed.D students to have dialogue with other doctoral students and past doctoral students. This may be a good place for people to share and test ideas, research interests and methodology.

I am a doctoral candidate. I am currently performing a pre-test with my instrument. This is to fine tune it for my study. If you are a middle school principal, assistant principal, or middle school administrator in any capacity and have experience on Long Island, in Westchester County, or Rockland County and would like to participate in my survey, please respond below.
Thank you for your time!
As an educator who has worked in both well- and low-performing schools, I have seen how important it is for students to be taught by highly effective teachers. I am conducting this survey as part of my doctoral dissertation in order to better understand how certain factors might influence the decisions of teachers like yourself to consider transferring from a well-performing school to a low-performing school.
This survey is anonymous, and neither you nor your school will be identified in any way. It should take only about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and it just asks you to answer a few short questions about how you might respond to eight hypothetical teaching positions. It also asks for some general information about you, so your responses can be reported in patterns with other teachers with similar backgrounds. The survey also invites you to offer any other insights you would like to share about factors that might influence teachers in well-performing schools to transfer to other schools.
This survey can be accessed at teacherchoice.edresearch.us. In addition to participating in the survey, please feel free to forward this to any teachers who you feel might be interested in participating.
If you have any questions regarding this survey or my study please email me at Adam.Chagares2@my.LIU.edu or my dissertation director, Dr. Paula E. Lester, at Paula.Lester@LIU.edu. If you have questions concerning your rights as a subject you may contact the Executive Secretary of the Institutional Review Board, Ms. Patricia Harvey at (516) 299-3591.

I am currently in the Ed.D program a William Howard Taft. Are any members in, or graduates of this program?
As an historian, social studies teacher, and school administrator, I am interested in the role of the teacher over time, as it is perceived by experienced teachers. My doctoral dissertation research focuses on the professional views and personal insights of teachers concerning the role of the teacher — both in terms of those elements that have remained constant across time and those that have been changing over the years.
I am seeking the views of in-service teachers with three or more years of experience. If you are willing to share a few minutes of your valuable time, please complete and / or forward this brief, anonymous, online survey to any teacher colleagues who might be interested in participating.
You can access the survey at http://teachers.netsurveys.us.
I will be very grateful for your participation in my dissertation research. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the survey, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My name is Joseph Coladonato, and I am currently a teacher in the East Williston Union Free School District. I am also a doctoral candidate at Long Island University's Post Campus.

This is an area I was also curious about, as I thought I had little experience, however, think about this...as a building principal, I am preparing budgets, organizing budget lines, auditing, collecting and managing funds etc. The principal is doing so much in terms of managing funds-it is quite amazing! We actually create our budget binder with requests for personnel, equipment etc. The point is, you may have done
some of this already, or you may be doing it now! My suggestion is to perhaps shadow a business official for a day or meet to discuss some of your interests. I have a feeling you know more than you think you do!! Plus, I do think the building business official is a critical position in any school district so read about the qualifications, and research the development of budget lines, and how to create a budget for a school district-since fiscal responsibility is critical, strong leaders will be needed-so research and talk to people-learn all you can---Lynnda
All doctoral candidates must work on a strong literature review! Be sure to read and research about your topic on a daily basis. Even 15 minutes per day in the early stages will assist you in staying on target. When you have completed your course work and are well into the research phase, you will be very happy that you have references in order and are able to frame your topic more specifically! Stay focused--Discuss-what is the real purpose of a strong literature review?
