Yesterday was my first day back in education. The only thing I can say is that when a school has good leadership a) everyone feels empowered to do their jobs and b) new people fit in like members of the team. I have a really good leadership team at my school. I'm learning more about the people and children there, but the most important thing is that the principal knows what's going on and is leading the school. This going to be a fantastic learning experience.
All I could think about was that this is where I should've been back many years ago when I didn't think teaching was for me. The truth of the matter is I've grown up over those same years and this is my time to shine.
I'll tell you more about it as the days unfold, but for now I need to go make my lunch for tomorrow.
