Waiting in Anticipation

Picture by David Restivo

Although many of my staff, wow does that have a different ring to it, there are a lot of things that I have to get used to.  As I was saying, as many of my staff slowly start thinking about coming back to school and beginning their classroom set-up. I have been at school, well all week. I have seen a few staff trickling in and out, however the majority of them will most likely show up periodically next week.

As I have been arranging my office and making the atmosphere more accustom to reflect my personality and my attitude towards educaton. I have come across many different elements that a Principal is required to do, that I took for granted as an educator. Even with all of this unanticipated work, I still am anxiously looking forward to spending more time with my staff and starting off the school year.

I have many, many ideas running through my head, and these ideas have been added to by the suggestions of staff that I have been in contact with. All these ideas aside, there is one that I will be fullfilling for sure. Posts are reflections and the personal account of an individuals adventures. So to account my upcoming adventure and experience I intend to write at least one post a week about my experiences, and hopefully it will reveal to other new administrators as to the adventures and experiences that one can look forward to.

  1. Really enjoyed the post. It looks like a great start to the new school year and your new position. Your goal of one post a week is admirable and I look forward to following your adventure!

    • Thanks Carlene – It is a lofty goal, I just hope that I am able to keep thing interesting, rather than just a glorified diary. Guess only time will tell right.

  2. Shawn, congratulations again on your new position! I look forward to reading all about your exciting adventures here. The staff and students are lucky to have you as their administrator!
