A group of people who are educators who don’t always get a lot of credit but also put in a lot of work are administrators. And with National Administration Appreciation Day a few days ago, I wanted to take some time to give some praise and kudos to those administrators who are trustworthy, support teachers, and care about the students in their school. So, in today’s episode, I’m reflecting back on a few of my favorite administrators and sharing some qualities they embodied that I appreciated so much.
When I look back on my time as a teacher in the classroom, I had three really good administrators. Some of their great qualities I appreciated at the moment, and some of them I can see the position they took and their demeanor actually benefited me, my students, and our school, even though I didn’t see it at the time. Each administrator was so different, but each of them encompassed these same qualities: trustworthy, supported teachers, and cared for the students. I believe these three things are so important, but I also appreciated the other unique characteristics each of them had that I shared in the episode.
It’s important to acknowledge that administrators are human too, so they aren’t perfect and won’t do everything that you agree with. However, if their heart is in the right place, you feel supported by them, which, in return, supports your students; there’s not much more you can ask for. So, take some time this week to share with your administrator just how much you appreciate their work, effort, and support!
