ADMINISTRATORS

 The responsibility for the operation of the school and its reputation appears to fall upon the shoulders of the school principal.    As with everything else, direction comes from the top down and the school, its teachers and its students are a testimonial to the effectiveness of the principal.  An administrator who does not become involved in the life of the school and the welfare of the teachers and students who work within, will soon be left to wonder why each teacher tends to pursue his/her own agenda.  Just as teachers spread enthusiasm to their students, so principals spread enthusiasm to their teachers.

  How sad that administration is the route that many teachers take when they become tired of  being in the classroom and dealing with students.  How sad too that many teachers feel that the role of administration is to handle discipline problems that can not be dealt with in the classroom.
