Open Access Graduate Research Paper
School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
What makes an effective administrator? We hear of so many different ways to become more efficient in our jobs. I constantly receive advertisements for the "make yourself the best" class which offers three easy steps to becoming a legendary administrator. Or I get caught up in a brand new reform guaranteed to solve every problem I encounter. 1 As I have made my way through graduate school, I have kept one question in mind: What kind of administrator do I want to be? Throughout this paper I discuss the areas pertaining to administration, and I state my thoughts on the characteristics of an effective administrator.
