Nantucket Elementary School Principal Diana Strohecker remembers working to inspire Anne Arundel County students 34 years ago, using multicolored chalk instead of traditional white or yellow, while teaching first grade. Nowadays, she is known for a tech-savvy approach to learning that would impress even the customer service representatives at Best Buy: from SMART Boards in every instructional area, to voice recorders for book reviews, webcams for projects with students worldwide, and devices that offer 24-hour surveillance monitoring of the school from her home and desktop.

A third Anne Arundel County school system administrator with more than 30 years of experience in the county schools announced her retirement yesterday. Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services Nancy M. Mann will end 35 years as a teacher, elementary school principal and central office administrator tomorrow, according to the school district. Mann was named director of elementary schools in 1985 and became assistant superintendent 12 years ago. She oversaw numerous changes after Superintendent Eric J. Smith arrived in 2002, including the adoption of uniform reading and math curricula countywide and the increased graduation credit requirement approved last year, which stemmed from the change to block scheduling in high schools.

Dozens of principals and assistant principals protested to the Baltimore school board last night - albeit silently - about newly hired "academic coaches" in their schools, some of whom are earning higher salaries than they are. None of the principals spoke publicly, but they attended the meeting to support their union representative, Sheila Kolman, who called the pay issue "demoralizing" and "alarming." It doesn't make sense, she said, that some of the coaches - who do not teach, but rather provide support and training to teachers - are making more in their 11-month positions than principals and assistants are making in a year.

An Anne Arundel County elementary school principal plants a kiss on the snout of a potbellied pig. An educator in Virginia jumps out of a plane. A principal in Idaho plunges into a vat of macaroni and cheese, and a Baltimore County middle school teacher shaves his head. An assistant principal in Texas eats raw worms. At the McDonogh School, administrator Noreen Lidston has been taped to a wall and has worn a cow costume to "jump" over a 13-foot Styrofoam moon. So when the youngsters at the private Owings Mills school achieved their summer reading goal this year, she made good on her end of the deal.

Diane Lenzi remembers the moment the federal government labeled her school a failure. The Park Elementary School principal was sitting at her desk, her Principal of the Year award neatly framed nearby, when her boss called and said parents would be given the option to take their children out of Park - and the school system would bus them someplace better. "I was devastated," says Lenzi, in her 12th year as principal of the Brooklyn Park school, where two years of falling test scores and a high level of pupil poverty qualified it for the federally mandated transfer program.
