Administration

The multigrade teacher/principal has many administrative duties to perform in order to provide quality education.

One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.” —Arnold H. Glasow

The administrator/teacher of a multigrade school has many responsibilities. He/she shapes the vision and ensures the academic success of all students, creates a climate hospitable to education, cultivates leadership in students and volunteers, oversees the operations, and plans programs according to the need of the school.

Blessed is the person who sees the need, recognizes the responsibility, and actively becomes the answer.”—William A. Ward
