  • The Fieldwork Portfolio is evidence of the growth and development I have experienced in my quest to demonstrate competency in the six administrative standards (CPSELs). This year presented many leadership opportunities that broaden my perspective about the responsibilities of an urban school leader.  The work I included in this portfolio highlights the information and knowledged I have attained throughout the academic school year.  A leader must lead by example and I tried to equip myself with the skills necessary to become the leaders others will want to follow
