I spent a TON of my time today putting out fires (figuratively of course!), answering parent concerns and handling building/scheduling/budgetary issues. I guess this is what administration is ACTUALLY about, right? A day in the life of an administrator, or “it’s lonely at the top.”
I’m kidding, I love this job. Even a week in, it’s awesome. Today was an odd day – it was like the first three days everyone let me settle in to the schedule, and on day 4, it was time to hit me with the hard stuff. It’s ok – I can handle it!
Especially since it’s Friday, there are 2 days to regroup, and a Michigan football game in my future.
Ahhh….the first week is over and we’ve all survived.
