I am an Assistant Principal at UMS-Wright Preparatory School in Mobile, Alabama. I have been employed at UMS-Wright for four years as a middle school science teacher, and this year, 2012, I have been promoted to my current administrative role. My responsibilities include the day-to-day operations of the middle school (grades 6-8), assisting the Athletic Director with athletic event organization, overseeing the Honor Council (grades 6-12), evaluating and implementing classroom technology, and organizing disciplinary detention which includes designing online courses to provide "time of reflection".
I quickly reached one of my professional objectives this year, which was to enter educational administration. I am not sure how far “up” in educational administration I would like to climb, but that is a benefit of being young in the field. For now, my current goal is to complete a Master’s in Science in the field of Instructional Design and Development at the University of South Alabama.My goals may shift upon the completion of this degree. I could foresee myself developing online courses, for both students and teachers, for educational institutions. At this point, I am very happy with my current position and looking forward to the future.
