SOL- Day 29 - Leadership

This year I have moved to a new school and a new position. It is a little overwhelming to not know a single person but I have always been an I wasn't worried. It became apparent very quickly that my principal was a mover and a shaker. By that I mean, she talks fast, has lots of ideas, and even more questions. At times it can be intimidating but more so I find it inspiring. She is someone I look up to and admire. Her ability to see the big picture and pick out details I hadn't even thought of is a quality I aspire to. Whether she knows it or not, she has pushed me. I find myself wanting to impress her and challenging myself to think even more outside the box than usual. I'm grateful for her openness and willingness to talk things through with me. I feel that I can reach out to her at anytime. I have had the opportunity to work with many great principals. I have followed principals from school to school and taught grade levels I never thought I would teach, just to be under their direction. And the trend continues...I would follow her too (not that anyone is going anywhere mind you!)

  1. I think it's so exciting to work for a visionary leader who appreciates innovation and risk-taking. I also get a lot of support at work for what I do and can't imagine wanting to work under anyone else.
