Calling Humility plays an important role in fulfilling your urge or passion for doing something. Humility is described as a state of being humble. As a substitute teacher, humility is a core value that plays an important role in my students’ growth and achievement. The state of being humble to my students has built trust, and this prevents acts that affect my teaching such as mistrust, arrogance, mistreatment, and poor classroom management. For teaching to be successful, practicing humility is compulsory because it will enable me to freely interact with my students, other teachers, and other people in general which will result in the acquisition of ideas and knowledge in my classroom. Love Love is a strong affection towards another person. Showing love towards my student plays a vital role I n developing student success in my classroom. By exercising love to the employees will result in the success in my classroom. Sometimes as a teacher, I hit a brick wall with some of my most unlovable and hard to reach students and children. However, I’m persistent in trying to love my student until they know you care. Love is the key to chipping away at those hearts of stone, so that they can receive the knowledge we have to impart into them. In conclusion, having followed my calling of being a certified teacher, my career as a substitute teacher in Huntsville city school’s area aligns with my calling. From the above core values that I resonate with, different ways can be used to describe the values. However, from my description of creativity, diversity, diligence, humility, and love for others, I can conclude by affirming that those are the right description of the values basing on the context. Being an ambitious substitute teacher, my objective is to teach values to my students who are the next future generation in helping this world become a better place. Core values can be explained as the principles that guides an individual’s primary conduct as well as its relationship with the others. During my coursework, I have studied and completed the Individual Core Values Identification (Concordia University, Portland, Oregon) and among the core values that were presented, the following are the five top values that resonates within me: • Creativity • Diversity • Encouraging others • Humility and • Love for others. I also strongly believe these values are important qualities that a great leader should have. Creativity- Creativity is inspired by passion and urge of exploring and figuring ways to perform better through creative use of new materials, information or innovation leading to incremental improvements in one’s areas of study, career or work. As an artist and one who loves to think outside the box, I have used my creativity skills while performing my duties as a substitute teacher to assist my students to learn and understand instruction materials and also what is around them. I consider myself very fortunate to work with young students who are not only eager and curious but also motivated to learn new things. Since my goal is to assist every student to be and achiever. I want to assist students to set exceed their own standards by constantly raising their bar themselves. I therefore strive to develop a good working relationship with each student in order to be able to guide them in studying in those artistic areas they choose and like best as individuals. I have used creativity in incorporating technology and encourage hands on lessons. I also try as much as I possible to encourage the student to be cooperative in order to improve our ways of engagement so that they can easily understand what they have been taught. I have seen it is necessary to introduce reflective activities as a way and means of providing students with an opportunity to absorb information more easily and deeply. Today’s generation of students rely on and love technology very much and so my making use what they love most and incorporate it as a part of classroom activity is more than welcome by most of them. Finally, it is important that a leader of any group be creative. My artistic creative qualities and passion of using collective imagination to develop effective solution to the evolving challenges posed by the environment has been assisted me very much in my work as a teacher. Creative imagination is more likely spark ides that can become innovation. according to Ladin Nikravan article “Why Creativity is the most important Leadership Quality” (Nikravan, 2012). Diversity Diversity is a broad group made of different demographic, ethnicity, class, gender, physical ability/quality, race, sexual orientation, religion, gender expressions, educational background, geographical location, income, marital status, parental status, and work experiences. (Williams, 2015). It does not matter where one goes, one is bound to always encounter people who are different from us. Taking of all these differences in a positive way, understanding of each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and welcoming these differences contained within each individual is the main feature of diversity and what makes United states of America a strong and most powerful nation on earth today. With that said, on my part as an individual, I believe that understanding diversity is an import aspect of been an effective as teacher and as leader. Born in and growing up in Africa, coming to and USA and becoming a US naturalized citizen and also traveling to and living in Thailand (in Asia) for more than five years has enabled me to be more open minded, accept, welcome and respect differences in culture, languages, customs, thoughts, and communicating with others. When I was working hospital as a nurse and attending patients from different backgrounds and now currently teaching different students, I always try to become more aware of student’s cultural background in order to be effective instead of assumption. Due to my background, I find it extremely important to support and protect my student’s diversity by valuing each individual because by valuing individuals it frees them from prejudice and encourages mutual respect. Any time I go to a new class, I initially engage in discussions with my student so I can learn more about them and I also try to extend interaction beyond the classroom with student parents and community. It’s the responsibility of a teacher to recognize and structure plans based on individuals so that a student can find it easy to succeed. Therefore, I recognize that my understanding of diversity assists me in encouraging individual students to recognize who they are and others as well. This also helps when leaders need individuals to work as a team and as an education leader who recognizes this helps in appreciation of a diverse school population. It also brings a connection between cultural heritage within a single school culture. To me recognizing and acknowledging our difference is part of treating students fairly and equally. Encouraging others - Encouraging others is essential value. As a teacher I have a mindset in which I believe all students can learn and do better. I use positive affirmation as well as positive criticism with my students and outside school. Using this strategy has helped me create a threat free environment in where students feel safe and supported rather than laying out the consequences of not doing things. I also allow my students to get involved in the classroom by assigning them tasks or responsibility. For example, I will ask one student to help me tidy up the classroom and I would ask other student to help me pass out paper. Encouraging students to have a sense of ownership and encouraging them to do good in class encourages participation. An Educational leader should believe and have trust with his students by recognizing their strengths allow his or her students to make decisions, and giving them more responsibilities. Humility Humility means “the state of being humble. I believe humility is the most vital value that a leader can have. It’s important to be humble because it helps build trust. My parents always taught me the importance of been humble. Leaders who are successful, exhibit humility. An arrogant leader treats conversation as a personal attack and by doing so, he effectively ends any real discussion of the topic and blocks any opportunity to learn or grow. Love for others- It’s no brainer. It’s important to love others and respect them. If you do not have compassion and love for others if will be difficult to be a teacher and a leader. I love what I do and I love children. This exhibits in my personality. References Nikravan, L. (2018, August 21). Why Creativity Is the Most Important Leadership Quality.

First, empathy stands out among the strengths. The excellent relationship with younger people and the ability to listen to other people’s feelings makes it the greatest strength. The test also helped to realize that I am a better educator. Furthermore, the lesson ought to be the first to learn after being raised in a Christian family. I had the feeling to support the younger siblings in the family emotionally whenever they were distressed or vulnerable. This explains the choice of careers that are focused on helping people physically and emotionally. Second, the ability to take responsibility for the people I care and love is a strength discovered after taking Clifton’s test. The value has developed since childhood, and Christianity made it more intense. Therefore, being responsible for important things is crucial. Responsibility displays from ensuring learners get educations towards making sure that children receive essential requirements such as education and excellent hospitality. Being futuristic is a trait that I have cultivated for a long time. Mastering the best things for students and being creative has proved part of the values. The test agrees with the nature of my creative minds by ascertaining that naturally, I spend more time figuring out what will be possible for weeks, thus giving the inventor, visionary, or a dreams point of view (Arditti 20). The test also affirmed being a developer and believer as part of the strengths. The ability to develop and believe in the creations makes the two values go hand in hand. The test claimed the ability to say what would help others feel useful and values in the community. Consequently, there is a strong belief that everyone in the world has a purpose. Regardless of the circumstances that make us lose hope, having individuals to strengthen and to face the difficulties in important. Muriithi2 A reflection on the results from Clifton's strength assessment test The ability to understand individual strength in an important step towards helping others achieves their goals. Being responsible, futuristic, ability to develop a new idea, and believing in them has helped solve people’s problems, thus helping them become great. Empathy has an impact on my life as a leader since it helps to understand the situations people are undergoing and coming up with effective means of helping the person. Being responsible for the people around is also a success. Lastly, leadership entails developing ideas and believing in their success, thus building a way to nurture other people's road to success. Responses of colleagues in the outcomes of the assessment. Colleagues have portrayed confidence with my work, more importantly, there is more appreciation on the ability to communicate and perform team roles. The team also believes that I am strong when dealing with matters relating to taking care of other people's welfare. The core values too align well with the work. For instance, creativity is part of the core values, and it works well with being futuristic, which marks on the strengths. The professional workmates agree with the manner I tend to handle issues in an artistic manner-thus many associating my character with being eccentric. Love has also received comments from the colleagues associating it with the ability to work extraordinarily to make others successful. Regardless of the professional colleagues featuring the strengths, there are instances of weakness. For example, there is a need to work on communication skills. The partners believe that there is a need to understand how to express views so that people do not misjudge the message. Muriithi3 Works Cited Arditti, Joyce A, and Elaine A. Anderson.

Muriithi1 CORE LEADERSHIP VALUES AND CALLING Olive Muriithi Professor William Hunter Concordia University Portland, Oregon Character Ethics of Leadership DISCUSSION ON CORE VALUES AND CALLING Muriithi2 Core Values and Calling Core values can be defined as the moral principles and beliefs that guide a person or social group conduct and are socially acceptable. A calling can be described as the strong inner urge to follow a profession which you are strongly attracted to especially the profession that involves helping others. According to Rusell (2001), many values that have been considered to be core values, for example, humility, generosity, courtesy, thrift, and so forth. Despite having many values that are found to be core values, this paper will base on the core values that resonate with me these are creativity, diversity, Encouraging others, Humility, and Love for others. Creativity Naiman, L. (2009) defines creativity as the idea of turning imaginative thoughts into reality. In modern society where, new ideas or innovation are needed to improve, society, business, schools, and government. Creativity is one of the core values that many employers seek in employees to improve their business. A study done by Adobe showed that 8 out of 10 people believe that creativity is important and valuable to society but only 1 out of 4 people live up to their own creative potential (Naiman, L.2009). Creativity inspired me to change my career from been a medical assistant to becoming a teacher which I believe is my calling. A substitute teacher allows me to teach my students ideas and material in creative style. My goal is to become a certified teacher that way I can be able to independently teach kindergarten. My intention of been a creative teacher is to develop learning action plan to accomplish successful academics with my students and allow my students to think outside the box. According to Daniel Pink (2005) creative thinking, is necessary in accomplishing goals in our interconnected world. With creativity as one of my core values, my motive is to help my students develop better social and interpersonal skills and have a creative mindset. The application of creativity in my classroom DISCUSSION ON CORE VALUES AND CALLING Muriithi3 has resulted in the success of my students’ academics and my calling of being a certified teacher which align with my current career in teaching students. Diversity Diversity is a broad group made of different demographic, ethnicity, class, gender, physical ability/quality, race, sexual orientation, religion, gender expressions, educational background, geographical location, income, marital status, parental status, and work experiences. (Williams, 2015). As a teacher, it's my responsibility to continually learn from my students. I’m also held accountable for educating my students about the importance of diversity and culture. Therefore, to ensure no students suffer from isolation in my classroom which can cause loss of concentration and interest in the classroom. I also hold my students responsible for learning to culture diversity to be more accepting and understanding towards other people’s differences. Diversity as a core value inspired me to fulfill my calling of being a teacher who considers student differences to create significant benefits to students and help narrow the academic achievement gap between a majority and minority students. Diligence Russell, F. (2001) defines diligence as a careful and persistent effort. Being envisioned teacher who is determined to make her calling come true, I encourage diligence among my students who have not only played the major role in my classroom but my life. The students who do work with diligence and skill, are able favorably compete academy and as well be a wellrounded individual. Humility DISCUSSION ON CORE VALUES AND CALLING Muriithi4 Humility plays an important role in fulfilling your urge or passion for doing something. Humility is described as a state of being humble.
