Here is an example goal from my life: As an expert in teaching with technology, I would like to be more supportive and resourceful to other faculty…as a leader and a role model. I am interested in addressing this leadership goal because I have had instructors from bioscience at ASU ask me to help them improve their teaching, and that situation made me feel that I have not been visible enough in some of the ways I use technology in my teaching. I think this goal will help me expand my ability to support the use of technology in teaching and learning from my current PreK-12 focus to a broader range, PreK-20.
What area of your future target job do you feel most inadequate? Explain the situation. (75-100 words)

The area in which I feel most inadequate in my current job is to obtain as much knowledge from upper management and filter down as much information to staff that I manage.  Being able to provide leadership in a way that allows my staff to feel as if they have learned something from me while working together.  Although I have been in the business for over 19 years things in my industry change over time.  Being able to stay current and also being able to share these new visions with my staff is where I struggle.
