It happened so fast….

Standard

This year went by so incredibly fast. I can’t believe that I have one year of administration under my belt. I have to say…I LOVED every minute of it. Every discipline case, every drama filled story that entered my office, every tear that students shed (I partook in a few) and most of all the laughter that occurred. I attribute all of it to the amazing staff I work with, that I proudly call my friends. Our office staff is full of goofball, silly, hardworking, loving people. I have learned not only the ins and outs of administration from an awesome principal, but I have also learned to laugh at situations (the “cray-crays” as we call them) and to laugh at myself more. I dare you to step into our office and hold back a smile. It’s impossible. We have more fun….productive fun that is, than dare I say any other campus in our district; maybe I’m just a bit biased.

I can say that there seriously has not been one day this year when I have woken and said, or merely thought, ugh, I have to go to work today! It has not happened…and believe me, I have had some humdinger days….cray-cray parents verbally attack me, goofy kids refusing to abide by rules, the never ending ARD meeting, and the awesome world of STAAR.

I attribute my happiness to God. I did my fair share of praying about a fulfilling career. I prayed that I would get a position as an Assistant Principal at my previous district and when that didn’t work out, I was crushed. I thought, what will I do….I can’t leave what I know! What I forgot to do was put my trust in God and know that He knows what I need. My prayers were really being answered and now I see that loud and clear.

Now it is time to enjoy my summer. Prepare to welcome Baby Hill into the world….those are a whole new set of blogs to come, and focus on the fam! It will not be long before I go back to a new set of kiddos and a new adventure in the world of Ninth Graders come August!

Patience at its best…

Standard

SO lately i have been working on my value of patience. It is really hard sometimes. When a friend lashes out over events that seem so petty, when I have to repeat my directions to my class AGAIN, when a job interview goes so strange and all I can do is wait, and when I pray over an event…and not sure when OR if it will be answered. This is all testing and keeping my patience in check.

All I keep telling myself is that none of this is in my hands. I am not in control of this situation. It is all up to God. I am learning, and it is a work in progress, to close my eyes and say this prayer.

Lord, I pray that you help me remain patient through the events that are taking place. It is not in my hands Lord. I lift it up to you and know that your will be done. Continue to help me grow Lord and learn that it is all out of my control. In your loving name,

Amen
