The Speech Of The Principal of Maynard High School

To be a leader is always a huge responsibility and requires much efforts not only from a person but from his team. As principal of Maynard High School I believe that success of school depends on efforts of each member of the staff but it is my responsibility to build good team. As a leader I try follow some principals. To start with I am not afraid to be bold (Hourston). Now I am looking for new teachers as I decided to introduce new subjects at school. Furthermore I am afraid to renew old contacts. A lot of teachers were hired by the former principal and I consider it a huge mistake. During several months of my work I managed to invite them back to school and now they are part of our new team.

To be a good leader it is necessary to know own strong sides. I have excellent communication skills, which helps me to attract new teachers and pupils to our school. I know some teachers who were unsatisfied with their former job and when I suggested them to join our renewed school, they were happy to accept my suggestion. Once a week we have common meeting in the school, where invited all teachers and pupils. Everyone one of them has possibility to suggest ways for improving school and level of teaching.
Due to such meetings we have already introduced new system at school. To start with all foreign languages are taught by native speakers and teachers who had language practice abroad. Furthermore I negotiate with foreign schools and universities to make exchanges for a certain period of time for our pupils and teachers. This will give excellent possibility to communicate with native speakers and plunge in language environment. In addition, every week the school will be visited by outstanding scientists.

In our school are highly appreciated all core values of modern society. Democracy, equality and diversity are very important in our school. As the main goal of our school is to create a student-centered environment, our team creates all conditions for students’ development not only in different fields of knowledge but also in doing different kinds of sport, painting, theater art. All mentioned sections will be opened in September.
We want our students to be developed in all directions that is why we introduce new sections. Every month the school we hold team competitions in different fields. It will help students to work in team and make friendly relations. Furthermore, the school will take part in different competitions in our city.

In addition school encourages students to make projects on different topics. I suppose it is very good way to help students not only to memorize facts but also will encourage them to be interested in knowledge and to be a team.

In addition we will encourage our students to help animals in shelters and people who need it. A special section which will deal with the problem will be created. It is necessary for developing in our students best human qualities.

Every month we will make common meeting where every student, every teachers and parents will be able to express their likes and dislikes in teaching process. In addition we will make available special boxes where everyone will be able to express wishes and complaints. We will create special department which will verify whether information is true. If it is so, we will take measures and solve the problem. I consider it to be very important step to democracy.

One of the major principals of the school is equality. Differentiation according race, gender, social status is absolutely unacceptable.

For to make our work more productive we defined short-term and long-term goals. To be our school on top of teaching we need our teachers to be good professionals. As not all of the teachers received evaluation this school year we need them to visit special courses and make one more attempt. Recently I had negotiations with one of courses and they are ready to help teachers to improve their knowledge. Those teachers whose evaluations were written without a formal observation will also make one more attempt to improve their results. After passing exams to confirm their qualification, the teachers will be encouraged to visit additional courses to improve their knowledge.

We want our students to be professionals in the future, so in the senior classes we want to introduce specialization. It means that students will have opportunity to choose most of the subjects. We want outstanding people to come to our school with lectures where will be present not only students but also teachers. We have already sent numerous invitations and most people are willing to help our high school. I consider that cooperation with employees is also very important. Our students will have possibility to pass traineeship with further employment in the best employers. I have already negotiated with some of them and they are ready to cooperate with our high school.Students of Maynard High School will be great scientists, businessmen, world famous actors and good professionals in many other fields but need to create all conditions to it to become true. Last week high school bought new laboratory equipment and in a short while we will buy new equipment for gym. In addition in a short span of time a new swimming pool will be opened. It will be free and more spacious.

I am very glad that our community supports Maynard High School. Due to its efforts new laboratory and gym equipment was bought and some people are willing to help with new swimming pool. It gives our students perfect example of a good citizen.

The school had already advocated some parents not to change high school for their children. The reason of it that we want not only that the quantity of our high school increased but also that students will not get more opportunities that in Maynard High School.

It will be hard to build productive high school without help of the community. So I plan to encourage citizens to share their knowledge and experience with our students. It would be useful to make some literature evenings, useful lectures in different fields where citizens will be able to share their knowledge with students.

As the principal of Maynard High School I understand all the responsibility and want to build strong team in our high school. However I must confirm that sometimes I am not only very demanding but also very strict. To my staff I have put such conditions according to which they would not be able to work unproductively because they will get salary according to the results of their work. It means that in the beginning and end of every school year we will assess the academic results of our students. However we will also take into consideration how often students did not visited school, whether they had or not problems with health and so on.In my work I try to follow advice of successful people, f.e. of Alex McClafferty who says:«Do not delay»( McClafferty).I like the following expression of Tony Robbins:«Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach»(Meier). Jose Silva said:« Success is not for the timid. It is for those who seek guidance, make decisions, and take decisive action»(Sicinski).
