Because you really want me taking up cloud space with this.

In other news, I have been busy. Very busy.
Helping a school with 1100 students towards Balanced Literacy with a workshop model when the teachers see their students a total of two hours on a good day is difficult, to say the least.
Difficult, but worth it.
Right now I am in the drafting phase of our 5-8 year plan of action. I am also making big decisions about what is to come. I'm relatively certain that I will be hated by more than a few people next year. I'm also relatively certain that that's okay with me.
Good teaching means learning every day. Good administration means setting the bar high for myself and everyone around me while being willing and available to struggle alongside each teacher, challenge myself and others, reflect and grow.
What have you learned from the best and worst leadership that you have had?

How psyched are you to know that I can make these fancy letters? I'm not exactly sure how this would make me a better teacher, but I will tell you how excited I am for St. Patrick's Day. The Irishness that I own has exploded in my house- green tablecloth, pottery, crystal, decorations, even a tiny pot of gold.
The beef is corning. I will make Irish bed in the next few days. I can't wait.
Bring it, St. Paddy!
