My principal supports the art program by contuously praising the students in the
program when walking in the door, by making me an integral part of the heirachy
of the school by insisting that I am on the important committees and making no
major policy decisions without asking my opinion, by allowing my colleague and I
to try anything and do most anything, by trusting us. For example, this year our
school wide objective will be an art objective accomplished through the history
department. He allows us to take field trips, and will and has supported us when
possible at administrative meetings. In all truth he has supported us over our
supervisor (who is a Foreign Language teacher). Probably the key is that our
principal has a masters degree in art history, and collects antiques. When he
taught, he was a history teacher.
