I had the opportunity to speak with several hundred different students.
I watched dedicated & committed teachers smile because they are excited for the year.
I was asked at least 15,539 times to help a student find the location of their next classroom.
I stayed extra late with a student so he would not be alone while we waited for a parent to arrive.
I reassured several concerned parents that we would take care of their son/daughter at school.
I spoke to a student who told me everything there is to know about tornadoes and storms.
I witnessed the 3 secretaries at PBJHS work in unison while literally "running" the school.
I was reaffirmed that learning the names of as many students as possible is absolutely crucial.
I got to eat about 17 Cheez-its and drink a V8 Fusion for lunch.
I think I helped to solve more problems than I created.
I witnessed shared leadership by several staff members which is totally awesome!
I showed a few pictures of my baby Maddy to some students.
I tried to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable and welcome.
I realized that being an administrator is truly an awesome job...
Stay tuned for day 2 :)
