When I started my educational career back in 1999, I was introduced as the art teacher. 3 schools, 2 school districts, 1000s of students and countless sleepless nights later, I will be adding my fourth school to this list, but this time I will not be introduced as art teacher but as Vice Principal.
I really jumped outside of the box with these paper maché writing instruments. These kids really wowed me and their classmates with their creativity and craftsmanship. They really impressed me with this project. I have to find the courage to stay out of my box more often.
Being Highly effective is a contagious feeling. In other words, I have gotten used to receiving highly effective ratings at the end of the school year. Year twenty is no different, in fact for the past 6 school years that was how my end of the year presented itself: a highly effective rating from my school administrator. It is not just from class room performance but all the other stuff I do outside of the classroom that some may call up and beyond; but I call it doing my job. As Brother Wesley so eloquently states in his book, "Onward and Upward towards the light"
I'm more than my title will ever be.
