Dr. Don Hooper (former president of AASA, former Superintendent of the Year in Texas, and college professor) shared this with me when I was an aspiring administrator. He said, “You’ll go far in school administration if you’ll just remember this one thing. Don’t mess with the money and don’t mess with the honeys!”
Read the headlines concerning principals and superintendents who lose their jobs, and you will be surprised by how many would still be working if they knew and followed Dr. Hooper’s lesson.
Think. Work. Achieve.
