224: And So It Begins

26 Aug

Today is my first day back at work and for principals, they are required to come up with theme to try and make all this mandatory stuff interesting. I don’t want their job so I’m not knocking it, it’s just…. Much.

Our theme or metaphor this year is a tree. We are looking at our core values. We are comparing different parts of the tree to what our jobs are, what the students do, etc.

Certain trees are pretty resilient. We laid all these word that could be part if our core values and we picked our top ten and then our top three. No where on this list was the word time, which really explains a lot.

I don’t think we value time enough in education. We expect miracles from educators and students but we don’t want to give them the time that is needed to make the miracles happen.

Off the soap box.

We are also on a week of dating since Missy Mack is at Honey’s house for the week. They had a date at the American Girl store today.

Tonight was sushi night at Cho! Super yum!
