Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Upon entering the educational administration graduate program, I held certain attitudes and beliefs as to what an administrator's responsibilities were. It appeared to me that a principal spent the majority of the day monitoring what was happening in the school . He visited classrooms, was visible in the hallways and at recess and spent a portion of the day in his office, available if he was needed. The coursework that I have taken, has forced me to re-examine the daily role that a principal plays in a building. It has also made me realize the vast amount of responsibility that is placed on an administrator's shoulders for the success of a school.
