Tip # 28: Sing Praises to the Principal
We all appreciate positive acknowledgment. If your teacher is doing exceptional work, thank them by making sure their hard work is acknowledged by the school as well -- send a letter, write an email, or make a call to the school principal. Too often, principals and administrators are only contacted when things aren’t going well. Contact your school principal with good news -- It will be a pleasant suprise for both teacher and principal, and a great opportunity to help foster a positive teacher-principal relationship.
