The educational leader must actively listen to the needs of his/her students, staff, parents and community. Today, it is extremely important for us to provide students with the skills necessary for tomorrow. We must have the vision to learn what is currently available, as well as the foresight to see developments in the future. One of my primary goals as an educator is to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) into every lesson I can. Not only does it benefit our students' abilities to creatively think and engage in learning, but it also provides us a chance to teach students how to become great problem solvers. The ability to solve problems will help them become a lifelong learner and develop the necessary tools to overcome any obstacle in life they encounter.
