    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes must be made in the approaches to school culture and teacher appreciation in order to maintain the high standards once prominent inside Christel House. Reward your staff for ingenuity, drive, and performance as much as is done for those with likability and longevity. Connect with your teachers, and listen to their concerns. Do not ask for their input, if their input won't be put to use when the majority feels a certain way. Spend less time in meetings and more time in hallways and classrooms with students and teachers. Continue to give students every opportunity to receive a wonderful education, but do not continue to allow a few students to dictate overall negative, cultural issues at the school.
