Open Access Graduate Research Paper
School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
As a future administrator, I realize that I must be both a reflective practitioner and visionary. As a teacher, I was trained to be reflective; as a future administrator, I am being trained to be visionary and reflective. 1 As a teacher, especially at the beginning of my career, I reflected only on if the lessons I had prepared were effective or if there were problems on which I could work. As time went by, I began to reflect upon my students themselves--how they learned, how they thought, and how I could help them to become better students. After some time, I realized that I had come to care about all aspects of school, not just what happened in my classroom.
