I'm looking to change districts. I will graduate in December with my master's in educational administration and I would like to move into a leadership role the year after this coming one. My GOAL is to be secure in the district I want to move up into. I may try for an AP position but right now, I feel like being an instructional specialist is best. I still love "teaching" and want to coach and support teachers. However, I'm not that person. I do not want to simply leave one district for a position. I want to move up. I feel I cannot adequately coach/lead if I haven't experienced it from the ground up. I do want to be an administrator and God willing, I will move up in a district rather that "move" to a district with a job offer. That's just me. Most do the opposite but again, that's me. My currentt district is out of whack curriculum wise and administration wise and all leadership. I do not want to move anywhere but away, lol. I'm applying to teaching positions with the intent to make strides towards leadership roles before applying for a position within the district. So what do I say? Opportunity to be secure in the district I want to move upward in??
