The only "important" person that I have problems impressing (that I care about
her opinion anyways) is my elementary principal. She signs my evaluations and
doesn't like any noise in the classroom (my biggest mark down - I love to "hear"
children learning!). I have found that making her look good gets me brownie
points. So I hang boo-koo exhibits, send artworks to be displayed around the area,
get my stuff in the local newspaper, write up articles for the school newspaper,
etc etc etc. Anything that gets my program noticed favorably gets her recognition.
She seems to think that all those compliments she gets about the art department is
because of how she "whipped me into shape". I think it's because I talk up my
program to anyone who will listen - actually I have them all brainwashed! *LOL*
BTW- my superintendant is a bozo who doesn't like my program ever since little
darlin spent all her class time flirting instead of working and got herself a big
ol' B. But he's a moron and that thought is shared by ALOT of people, so I don't
worry about it. I just make sure I'm in good with the school board :-).
