Open Access Graduate Research Paper
School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
As I began reflecting on education and leadership in the school setting, I realized that I have been involved in formal education in one form or another for the past forty-three years. I began kindergarten in a one-room rural school, with one instructor for nine grades. The teacher picked me up and transported me to school each day. I'm not sure what role the principal had in that school at that time. I don't actually remember a principal. The next year I began first grade in a Catholic school in a small town, and I continued in this school through grade twelve. It was in junior high that I began thinking about becoming a teacher, and in high school that I decided on a career in the education profession. Many wonderful, caring teachers and principals along the way helped to influence my decision to become an elementary school teacher.
