Why I Never Wanted To Be An Administrator

I like kids. Unlike others,  I never wanted to hurt them by taking a job I knew I would not be good at.

Actually, I think you would be good at it. I don't really think you'd want to do it, though. I don't think I'd want to do it either, and I also know I wouldn't be good at it. I'd rather be in the classroom, and I know you would too.

If being an administrator was like the old days (sorry to sound like an old fart), when the bulk of their responsibility was molding new teachers, then I think you would have been great at it. Teaching teachers to teach, being supportive and positive, bringing out the best in them, you would have made an awesome A.P. But today it's all about the numbers and the DoE agenda of making teaching into a revolving door of newbies.
