Can you please check my grammar?

I'm not sure if the grammar of this paragraph is accurate, can you please check through for mistakes?

Si fuera director cambía las reglas porque un poco de las reglas son estupido y irritante. También, mejoría mi instituto para un ambiente mejor.

English: If I were headteacher, I would change the rules because some of the rules are stupid and annoying. Also, I would improve the school to make a better atmosphere.

También, mejoría mi instituto para *** (You need a verb in infinitive here so your sentence won't sound fragmentary) un ambiente mejor.

(*) For reasons of euphony, "y" must be changed to "e" when the next word starts with the sound "i".
- We don't say "agujas y hilos", but "agujas e hilos".
- We don't say "lagartijas y iguanas", but "lagartijas e iguanas".
