Leadership in Staff Development: Perceptions of New Teacher Center Directors.
Applegate, Jane H.
Broad areas of teacher center directors' roles and responsibilities were identified through an examination of their perceptions of job expectations, time spent on activities, and their frustrations and concerns. A survey elicited responses on six categories of job responsibilities: program development, service to teachers, administration, public relations, assessment and evaluation, and personal growth. Comparisons are made among the directors' expectations in each category, the actual amount of time spent in each, and their frustrations and problems. Administration and public relations were revealed as the most time consuming duties in their jobs, while lack of time for better services to teachers and for personal development proved to be the greatest sources of frustration. Results of the survey are demonstrated by graphs, and supplemented by observations and insights. (JD)
