School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
Effective principals articulate a clear vision about what they expect of adults and students. They do this more than just the beginning of the year. They spend time explaining to students what they expect in achievement, behavior, attitude,and effort. They don't make excuses. They make sure learners have what they need to meet high expectations. They motivate, inspire, provide direction, and celebrate excellence. If principals don't have high expectations, they cannot expect much of others.
Principals must establish high expectations in their schools. You can model high expectations by selecting challenging goals, informing others of your dreams, and keeping people posted as to your progress. Modeling the process of setting a high standard, planning the steps to its achievement, and regularly assessing growth is one of the best lessons you can teach the students in your school.
