If I were the Principal of AITIS for one week
I used Wordart.com to create this image.
There is one question I always ask myself. Does a principal have a hard job? It seems easy to me because keeping a school disciplined with a bunch of teachers helping doesn’t look very hard right? Here is how I imagined my school would be if I were the principal.
I think snack times are not important because it is just 1 hour and 30 minutes after you had breakfast. I will reduce the 20 minutes time we have for snack to 10 minutes and give an extra 30 minutes for lunch time. My normal lunch time is from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm which is too less for me and some other people because some people think lunch time is for playing with friends. Sometimes I see kids eat their lunch in 5 minutes and run to our school’s pavilion to play soccer. All of us know rushing yourself to eat is an unhealthy thing to do.
I would make Friday an optional no uniform day but of course with a dress code. Like sleeve shirts and knee length pants. For the artistic students, I will open an art club where student would think of art projects to make the school look nicer. I will not let the students wear accessories like earrings and rings, no cell phones either because the students who don’t have these things will feel embarrassed and shy.
I would let school start at 8:30 because for a night owl students like me, it is very hard to focus in class when you are still feeling sleepy. Certainly the school hours will be from 8:30 to 3:15 not 2:45. I would assign more responsibility to the students by making them clean their own classrooms. Every month I will come to each classroom and teach for one class period.
I will have to be a strict principal if I want the students to respect everyone but I am pretty sure I will turn the school into a chaos if I become a principal right away. I guess I shall finish the required qualification first and get some experience.
