For the sake of clarity, I loved my last Principal. I’d have followed him to Mars if he had said the trip was necessary. I never hesitated to give up an evening for him. He was the coach I needed.
Eduhonesty: Administrators are team-builders. The art of building a team, like teaching, requires an understanding of the players on the field. I work well when asked. I will work furiously for someone intelligent who treats me well and listens to me.
I sure do miss that guy.
(I’m mostly working furiously anyway. The kids need me. I spent 2 1/2 hours tutoring them on Saturday morning. We made some good progress, too.)
