The Challenge • Take a walk around your school, when you get the rare opportunity, and survey the great things that your colleagues are doing.
Involved Administrators • As an administrator, this connection transcends beyond an informal process of keeping her pulse on the activities of teachers in their classrooms; it’s a contractual obligation.
So much to know! • The requirement of an administrator is to juggle the needs of a faculty that teaches the core subjects of • language arts, • math, • science, • world languages, • and social studies.
Special Areas • In addition, the committed administrator supports the teachers of domestic skills (cooking, sewing, woodshop), • physical education/health, • music, • special education • and technology.
