Tom Hatch | Principal | Terry Sandford High School

Prior to my first day on the job I knew the most important thing I had to do was build trust. I created what I call the Pyramid of Trust. During the summer I met with parents, teachers, students, and staff and I discussed a variety of things but ultimately I talked about the Pyramid of Trust. The capstone of the pyramid is trust. Each wall represents an expectation that I had of myself and my staff. Those expectations are Positive Relationships, Open Lines of Communication, Give People What They Need, and Give People the Support They Need. A foundation of high moral, school spirit, and pride becomes the base.
