The New York Times Finds A Good Principal

Chang W. Lee/The New York Times: Jacqui Getz, the principal of Public School 126 in Chinatown, with Carlos Romero, an assistant principal.

Ms. Getz wants to know whether teachers continually challenge themselves, have the power of reflection, make intellectual connections and are curious about the art of teaching. Some of what she’s hunting for, she can describe only vaguely: “There’s something at the core of a good teacher that kids get, and makes them feel safe and relaxed.” 

Just about everything I read about this remarkable principal makes me want to call up P.S. 126 and beg for a position there… I think I’ll keep this article and read it from time to time  to remind myself of what education is really all about:
