articulation, implementation and stewardship of a vision of learning that is shared and supported
by the school community. I believe its extremely important for the principal to be able to create
and maintain a positive culture in the school campus. This is able to be accomplish through the
collaboration with parents, staff, and students. I also believe that the principal has the ability to
respond to things in different manner, depending on the situation. This also helps to maintain
order and at the same time letting your staff know that you care about them, but a principal
should also know when is time to give directives.

the other hand if they set high standers. Parents are most likely to meet and abide by the set rules.
