How to use headmaster in a sentence?

  2. Paul. F. Meekin:

    Since I've been in the education business - often the only way to relate to teachers, parents & children - are with words of wisdom. If I could know all the wise books by heart - I would stand a chance at being a better Headmaster. Also for when it comes to my family & friends - that knowledge would always be there to give inspiration & encouragement & tell me who can't use that with their relatives!

  3. Adib Zalkapli:

  4. Paul. F. Meekin:

    The truth is that we are all born into this world quite ignorant, personally I like to think of my behavior in my youth as a "learning experience." I have a great many regrets, and I'm sure most everyone does. However as a Headmaster I now feel that I must protect the memory of those stupid things, so I can teach the value of them to my students. However if they don't want my advice they can always go get a "learning experience" for themselves!

  5. Michal Schwartze:

    Fortunately, I have colleagues who are sensitive and a headmaster who has an interest in preventing anti-Semitism.
