I really like this quote by John C. Maxwell as it demonstrates what exactly a leader is, someone who has the knowledge of what the right thing to do is, does the right thing, and encourages all to follow in their footsteps. I think this is important for teachers to understand as an effective teacher is one who has the knowledge and must transfer it to their students. This artifact ties in to Week 7, focus on leadership, where we were able to speak to administrators and find out how they manage the whole school through their leadership skills. The excessive knowledge they had was transferred to us students, which exemplifies a real leader. I will always keep this quote in my mind as I find it significant when deciding what kind of teacher I want to be, one that leads and sets the right examples for her students.
