Holden Clemens (a pseudonym) is a teacher in Springfield, U.S.A. In today's post, he continues his series on practical tips for working with the gamut of exasperating educational archetypes.
I would like to tell you a story about the Invisible Administrator. I know what you are thinking, "Cool! Holden taught at a haunted high school!" Sadly, I taught at a regular high school, but the infrequency that I saw the principal in my school was plenty frightening.
I taught at a high school for a few years and we had a revolving door of principals and assistant principals. There were different reasons why they came and went, but one stayed around for while and that pleased the school board. Not having to search for a principal saved everyone time and money.
