There are very few men that choose to enter the profession of teaching, especially at the elementary level (U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, 2008). The men that do make this choice are faced with certain challenges and societal stereotypes that make this career path even more difficult to navigate. Given the small numbers that exist and some of the unique factors that face men at this level, the relationship between a male elementary classroom teacher and his building administrator is one to examine.
Within the context of the research that has been done on the gendered role of elementary classroom teachers, as well as the studies that have documented best practices in Educational Leadership, this study will investigate what impact, if any, the principal plays in the professional life of a male elementary classroom teacher.
