The High School Principal: What I Should Like to Have Known before I Became a High School Principal


by Charles C. Tillinghast 1920

In attempting to formulate into a paper that may prove helpful the results of my thinking about the many things that I should like to have known before I became a high school principal, I am confronted with two difficulties. The first is the necessity of using the pronoun I with a high degree of frequency--a bad habit for a principal to develop; and the second is the need of choosing from so much that I didn't know those elements of the problem which can be treated within the limits of a short paper, without encouraging in my hearers the belief that I know all that there was to be known about everything not here mentioned. With a brief statement, then, that the I is used not to focus attention upon myself but to make clear that the matters discussed come not from theory but from actual experience, and that there were very many things indeed which I did not know in addition to the few which, because of their importance, I am considering here, I introduce myself to this friendly audience.
