Benjamin Mosley is a leader with a constant focus on what is best for his students. He believes strongly in the importance of building relationships with his students, teachers, and families in order to understand what their needs are, which goes beyond what data can show him. In the words of one of his teachers, “Mr. Mosley doesn't just lead the school, he wants teachers to be an active participant in the success of the school and he values feedback whether good or bad.” Under his leadership, Glenmount has increased parental involvement by establishing parent programs and treating parents as partners who play a vital part in the decision making for the school. Mr. Mosley has also worked with his school community to increase the amount of student activities available, including the creation of a Homecoming Week for the school. Mr. Mosley greets everyone with a smile and treats everyone with respect, which has helped him earn the respect of the school community he serves.
