The next most important thing that I learned this semester is the value of my administrators. I work with a good group of administrators. My school has a total of 5 AP's. One AP in particular is excellent at what she does. She is the AP over instruction. Her last name begins with a B. When the principal is out she is always in charge because she is good at what she does. When she is not there, I feel lost. Her presence brings me relief and comfort. I know when she is not there even if I don't have prior knowledge of her absence. Because of the aforementioned facts, I call her "the Queen B of Columbia". She is very supportive and resourceful. For me, as well as others, I can say that she will always have your back. As long as you do what you are supposed to do, you're covered. She is very welcoming and easy to talk to. She is a wife and mother and is therefore very understanding and sympathetic as well as empathetic when needed.
Our principals last name also begins with a B, so I call him "the King B of Columbia". He is very knowledgable and resourceful as well. He is only 40 and is excellent at running or managing a school. One of his goals is to promote higher learning for the students. He has and is implementing many different strategies for student improvement. He is also implementing different teaching strategies for the teachers in order to see an improvement in student behavior as well as achievement. Slowly but surely we are all beginning to see a change in the students as well as the mindset of the teachers.
I am truly blessed to have an excellent group of administrators who are genuinely concerned about the students as well as the teachers and staff.
