Abstract

Education in America is changing. This paper will explore the role an administrator plays in developing a shared vision, empowerment, school-community relations, staff development, the hiring process, and in dealing with social problems.· "All principals are instructional leaders, since all principals inevitably influence what students have an opportunity to do in the classroom" (Donmoyer, 1990, p. 27). Administrators should be the facilitators of teachers. It is important to be the kind of principal that teachers can trust to implement changes. A principal's purpose is to nurture and develop better teachers. A critical part of the job is to help all teachers to understand that they are there for the benefit of the kids.
