The superintendent introduced the grant process and explained that the district’s HR guy was going to make the presentation along with a representative from each of the participating campuses.
Oh. my. gosh! A little bit more warning would have been nice.
But in the end, all I can say is: thank goodness I’ve made the pitch for our plan to three different audiences before this evening!
I still say I need more practice with public speaking, though.
I still break out in hives and when I’m really nervous (like I was tonite) my vocal chords constrict so I can hardly talk.
Sure could have used a glass of water up there!
And how was I? Brilliant, of course. I anticipated their questions and answered them before they could be asked. I pitched the entire plan for our campus. I explained why we included every single person on our campus … from the custodial staff to the principal … and why we couldn’t not write them into the plan …
Because we’re all family and we ALL want our students to succeed.
Oh and one more thing …
The Board approved our application.
