Charles Collins
To obtain an Administrative Credential and Masters in Administration WHY THE ADMINISTRATIVE CREDENTIAL? I want to be the best in what I do. I want to know as much as possible. I want to learn to work with all levels of the system, either from the inside or the outside. I want to make sure that those that I am advocating for have a system that is ready to receive them and can intervene in an effective and positive manner. I want to be able to work for the benefit of all at risk students and look at remedial education before failure occurs. In the future, I would like to run a school, program, or school within a school that addresses students that struggle to pass, or work at a regular school and be able to address the needs of the achieving students and those that are falling between the cracks.
