School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
Administration is a word cluttered with connotative and denotative thoughts for each individual. When attached to the word education, it brings on another layer of detail and philosophical purpose. Obviously those of us involved in education have laid down the first belief that is essential to our jobs. That being the desire and the motivation to mold and educate our nation's youth. We believe we will make a difference in children's lives. An important and positive impact toward the education of our youth should and will remain the focus for administrators, for without children, we would have no purpose. However, that in and of itself is not enough for the administrator. He or she has a desire and demand to do more and be more. Those roles and beliefs are the object of this narrative.
