• Build a thriving culture of commitment to excellence, collaboration, and constant learning among colleagues, students and families
• Be an inspiring role model to students and faculty, nurturing positive relationships and providing support and care for all students.

• Management ability, to lead teams in which teachers are engaged in their work, constantly growing and accomplishing great things together
