The principal of my kids’ school embodies servant leadership. We have a crosswalk near a major entrance to school without a light, and it’s heavily trafficked in the morning and afternoon as we all try to get our kids to school on time. It desperately needed a crossing guard, and CPS was failing to get one budgeted and hired. Our principal is out there every day with a bright vest and a handheld stop sign during the 15 minutes before and after school helping get kids and parents across the street the safely.

He does not have to do this, he is not required to this, and yet he is out there doing a job well below his pay grade. When his contract comes up for renewal people are going to remember that he demonstrates his dedication and care for the student body through very visible action, not just words.
