The inexperienced no nothing AP is mentoring the young teacher who has had enough of the classroom and wants to move on to a position in administration. Here is a copy of the letter the AP wrote her to cement their relationship.
Dear Young One,
I was once a newbie like you. After only a few years I too decided I wanted to be an administrator. I could not see myself standing in front of a classroom and dealing with problem students for the rest of my career. Tough kids make me cry and they scare me quite a bit. Now I can assign those kids to the teachers I don't like and hide out in my office whenever there is a problem. I make sure I program myself for classes that require no work and I have even dismissed classes early. I am in charge. Who is going to tell on me? Besides, I love giving orders to others, especially those older and who think they are wiser than me.
Don't worry about not knowing much about a subject you are in charge of. Look at me. I knew nothing when I began this job and still know next to nothing. I never make a decision and pawn work off on others. When I don't have an answer, I stare and get nasty to all around. I can teach you to do all this and more. I can help you get bonuses.
Young one, know this. While I am mentoring you, you will be my slave. You will do everything I tell you to do, including cleaning my house and babysitting my child. You will write my observations and order my supplies. Never forget I own you. But, when it is all over, you will be able to own someone else.
Life is good when you are young and beautiful and know a little about technology. Knowledge about anything else is totally irrelevant.
Know Nothing and Proud of it Administrator
