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?

           From the classroom to the capitol, education reform has triggered rapid change impacting every stakeholder.  The Illinois Principals Association continues to take a proactive approach in identifying and addressing the ever-evolving demands reform has placed on the profession while keeping the delivery of high quality service to each member a priority.  As IPA President-Elect, alongside IPA leadership, I will continue to advocate for students and administrators, design innovative professional development opportunities driven by education reform, and promote the services, resources, and supports available to every IPA member.
