“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Ghandi
True Story. Every year (including this year), my intentions and optimism are sky high. I head into a school year thinking of projects, ideas, innovation and truly changing the face of education.
This year my summer ideas included student podcasting, mobile maker space, supporting aspiring administrators and continuing to transform learning spaces. Furthermore, I wanted to really spread our vision beyond our walls and into the community.
Sounds fantastic, right?
Then reality hits. I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. Issues ranged from student discipline all the way to balancing a budget…and don’t get me started on evaluations!
What is a leader to do?
