And third, I take note of the textbooks being used to determine if the school is using the currently recommended texts. "I visit every classroom during the day and meet with the teachers after school hours. I often time my visits so I can meet with parents and the school board at night. "This is a service office. We want to be of service to those out in the field teaching. It is important to encourage teachers in their work. This always helps. "I usually visit half of the schools in the spring and the other half in the fall. I don't sneak up on them, either, but ask when would be the best time for me to come. Sometimes, I make another visit to a school. This takes a lot of time, but it is my work. We want to provide quality education for our boys and girls," she concluded.

But when the need arises to hire a lay principal, there is more involved. "They must be approved by the Superintendent's office before being hired. At present, we have four lay principals in the diocese. And half or more of our teachers philosophy. And we're proud of our record in hiring them." Sister Henrietta also must maintain personnel files on each teacher in her office and keep them up to date. "This is mostly certification and service records, though," she said. Sister Henrietta also publishes a monthly newsletter for the teachers. closely with each other. We mail out over 500 of them each month. I started this in 1978," she said.
