to involve family members will be tough, but in order to meet the goal of involvement, sometimes we have to
make those adjustments.
Lastly, curriculum plays a major role in our educational system. In order to set up a curriculum that works for
your student and stays in line with federal mandates, there needs to be an understanding of what you have done,
what you need to do, and what you can do. Involving all of your administrative staff in the planning process
and creating a sense of buy-in will be very important if you want to have a successful curriculum. There needs
to be a strong foundation, possibly rooted in theory, so when questioned or lost, you can always trace back to
the root of why you set up the system in the first place. It will be important to assess everything and find the
specific issues, if any, and manage them accordingly. A great administration will hire diverse people, not just
by race or ethnicity, but all levels of diversity. In doing so, you create a culture and climate that will allow the
students to identify with someone within your system and start to feel more at ease. The administration should
also set up people for success, no glass cliffs, ceilings, or walls. Being transparent in this manner will create a
sense of trust and commitment. Use standards as guides, create a value, culture, climate that is conducive to all
types of learning, recognize achievements, create space for feedback, change, allow for grace, set goals, hold
professional development seminars, create continuous learning spaces. All of these things need to be considered
when designing a curriculum that will work for your students. Much of which is not directly related to the
curriculum, but if not set up properly, can cause a great curriculum to fail.
There are a multitude of factors that can impact an educational system, all of which require specific attention
to detail. My philosophy of education revolves around the notion that individuals can be successful if given
the opportunity to. If you build it, they will come. Creating strategic plans and structures to support learning
and growing. If you build it, they will come. Changing the way that we think about education in order to meet
the needs of students and families. If you build it, they will come. Using the full potential of your resources to
maximize the impact on our students. If you build it, they will come - becoming a student ready system.

Parental Anxiety
DeFreitas-Thomas Chudney, University of Central Florida
My daughter moved into her Residence Hall at UCF in Fall 2018. Being a staff member here in the Department
of Housing and Residence life gave me a parental edge. I was able to advise her to get involved, and she did.
She utilized early move-in, took part in our NASPA program of the year Summer Housing Leadership Institute,
joined the Residence Hall Association, found a part-time position on campus and went to class.
I was so proud of her independence, and I thought I had it all together; I found out, I didn't.
It snuck up on me, the panic that my Knight was now out of my locus of control. I'm not a helicopter parent;
I am not a snow plow parent; as my husband put it best, I'm a free range parent with limits. We have always
believed in setting our children up for success while teaching them how to navigate the world. Now, I was
having anxiety about whether or not my child would make it.
