Before becoming a department head, he taught history in this same department for four years. Jon is currently in his eleventh year of teaching. He also went through a similar leadership program in earning his master’s. Joh does not know if he will continue on this path and get his licensure, he is not sold on the fact that he wants to be a building administrator. He told me he is completely content with teaching and serving as the department head in our building. When asked why he got into being a department chair, he replied it was a no-brainer for him. He said all the extra perks that go along with the additional workload that you may have far outweigh the negative aspects of the job. He spoke of an extra period for observations and collaboration with other teachers in the department, serving on a committee that directly made changes to the school curriculum and department, and a chance to guide other teachers and serve as a mentor for students. He also mentioned the extra stipend he receives for completing the task. said how nice it would look on a resume if he ever did decide to further pursue the licensure program and interview for a building administrator spot.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
