Operations and Management
Educational leaders are responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of schools and divisions. My specific interest lies in maintaining and managing technology resources, including both hardware and software asessts.
Managing School Resources
School resources should reflect the mission and vision in action. For projects in my finance course, I evaluated a school's fiscal resources. I also proposed school improvements via a library renovation project; this project is taking place in the summer of 2022 and 2023
Fiscal resources are not the only resources that administrators must manage. Talent management is also an important leadership role that contributes to school culture and supports the mission and vision of the school. I interviewed various HR leaders to go about finding out hour districts obtain, develop, and retain personnel
In October 2022 I facilitated the launch of
E-hallpass at WSHS in response to the bathroom vandalism and rampant vaping that was occurring. The data from e-hallpass allowed security to understand the movement and location of students in the building and provided them with actionable data to take disciplinary action.
Student safety doesn't only relate to physical and emotional safety but also data safety. In a paper I wrote for School Law I analyzed the division's acceptable use policy to see how it was protecting division assets as well as the humans that use the system and their data.
in "My Digital LIfe" I conducted a series of webinars for students and caregivers in the spring of 2022. In these webinars I provided the community with information and tips on managing their digital life. You can view resources shared here: http://mydiglife.com/
