Truth Time

Ahhhhh …

Truth time:  I promised myself at the beginning of the school year that if I made it to Spring Break that I’d be able to make it to the end of the school year.

This has been a very hard, very stressful school year.  Learning a new job always is.  Am I glad I moved into this position?  Yes & no.  Like I said, it’s been a very hard, very stressful school year.  Aside from the stresses, there have been some incredible high points:  I got to go to the ASCD national conference.  I received an iTouch.

Okay, while the iTouch is very cool, there’s a reason we have them:  we’re expected to use them as tools during our Learning Walks.  The question is, how many a week will we be expected to do?  I have seven campuses.  Will I be responsible for doing the same number of Learning Walks as the assistant principals?  Gosh, how will I be able to do that?

Anyway, I won’t dwell on that as we haven’t received that training yet … it’s coming, but we haven’t had it yet.

The students have 10 more weeks of school once we’re past Spring Break.  I won’t finish my contract year until June 22nd or so.  Truthfully don’t remember the exact last day of my contract.  And then we return on the 24th of July.  Not a whole lot of time off, but long enough I suppose.

This year has been a growing experience and despite my initial frustrations at the beginning of the school year, I’m glad I made the change.

The world’s greatest librarian was right:

It’s almost 18 months after I finished my Master’s.   I’m ready to start the application process for my doctorate.
