It is absolutely the ADs job to keep the kids safe and to hire people who want to teach and nurture them. The world is a tough place but it is our job as teachers and parents to nurture kids so they have the confidence to face obstacles in the future. Tearing kids down and making them feel less than good enough does NOT prepare them for the real world. Hard work and positive reinforcement help them develop into confident adults. It is important to let kids know that it is NOT alright to be treated this way. Why do people choose to work with/for children if they don't have the right intentions?
