In the last week, I have had more staff turnover than I care to admit. My admin is leaving due to home obligations, my music teacher has decided she can’t teach my band (a brand new program in the school) and a whole host of other things. It’s been a very, very long week.
A few of my colleagues have reminded me that everything happens for a reason, it’s not the people but the process, etc., etc. It’s true, but it’s still difficult to handle as a first-year administrator. I feel like I’m so exhausted learning the process of my own position, let alone the process of hiring more people and teaching them their positions. Not to mention the good people we’re losing. I have never been one who was good with saying goodbye, so this is a part of the job that will be difficult for me. Sometimes it feels like everything is piling up around me!
Luckily, everything does happen for a reason and everything WILL work out. I truly believe this. “God only gives you what you can handle.”
I sometimes wish he didn’t trust me so much!
