I just received news yesterday morning that I will be transferring to a new school in September. I'm mostly excited beyond words. I'm finally getting a chance to work in a new community. I'm not expecting a "better" experience, just something different. I think I need to serve in another school in a completely different location before I begin to discern whether or not being a principal is for me. That's right, I still don't know. It's not that I'm unhappy in my job or have any regrets. I'm definitely not ready at this point to say with any certainty that I'm ready.
Anyway, there are a lot of mixed emotions. In as much as I thrive on change and new challenges, I'm sad to part ways with the families I have worked especially close with over the past four years. For anyone who doesn't believe that Administrators make real connections and differences in the lives of kids and families, you should look at my inbox.
