I am a staff developer with a special interest in the relationship between high quality, supportive instructional supervision and enhancing teaching capacity. I provide professional development training and facilitating services to school districts across Long Island. I served in public schools for 34 years as an assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, a principal, and a teacher. I'm actively engaged in (and committed to) teaching aspiring administrators in the School and District Leadership Program at Stony Brook. My current foci as a consultant emphasize the following: strengthening supervisory practice, teacher performance appraisal, professional learning communities, and building links between research-supported practices and classroom instruction. I am happy to be able to volunteer as an assessor in the LI School Leadership Center's Assessment Program for Aspiring and Beginning School Administrators. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Really enjoyed seeing you at the Danielson conference. APPR met yesterday and I shared the fact that we had spent some time together. Thanks for getting us off on the right foot - we will be applying for our variance in order to be able to implement our own rubric - the group is very proud of its work.
I have successfully taken the Educational Testing Services' School Leadership Trainers Certificate Course in 2006 in Ft. Lauderdale. I have also successfully taken the College Administrator Standards Course hosted by Hampton University in the same year. I have made presentations in various countries encompassing the improvement of those standards through the use of over 150 theories, formulas and practica which I have drafted and copyrighted. What I feel is the main concern is the need for administrators at all levels, elementary to professional schools, to not just get involved with students, but to honor each and every one of them. This can be accomplished through various avenues. In a speech I gave both in Oxford University as well as Washington D.C., I suggested that students be allowed to become a member of the board, if not the chair itself. Since the student has understandings from both textbook and personal experiences, why are we not showing them that we can give them responsibilities based on their improved understandings. The most important person ( VIP) of any school or school environment is, and always should be, the student. I would be honored if you, as an assessor of future school leaders, could give me your take on that proposal. Hoping to hear from you soon.
