For those of you struggling with weak admin, does your district not allow teacher transfers within the district? In other words, can you not move to another school, if an opening arises, where a strong administrator exists? Where I am, each year teachers move, retire, resign, get non re-elected, etc. Those openings are first available to existing teachers. Then, depending on budget, we may look outside for the existing vacancies. This year, for instance, we are not hiring any teachers from the outside but we had plenty of movement on the inside. If you work for a weak admin, I encourage you to move on.
