I Am Not a Leader: A Case of Mistaken Identity


I am a taskmaster. My life is full of lists of things to do: lists on post-it notes, lists on organizational planners, and sometimes lists on the back of my hand. I get great satisfaction from scratching off tasks as they are complete. I use lots of ink to strike through each task one by one. I feel total satisfaction when my paper is covered in ink from my write-ins and scratch-offs.

I am a learner. I love learning new things. I have participated in a postgraduate residency program and 2 fellowship programs, and now I'm back in school in pursuit of an EdD degree. Basically, I haven't been out of school since I got out of diapers. In my free time, I use apps to learn different languages, listen to TED talks, and read books. I am a consumer of information.

I get things done, and I am teachable. I am not a leader.
