A little over a week ago I took this photograph in a first year teacher’s classroom. Yes, you hear my heavy, audible sigh. I remember that bright-eyed and bushy-tailed feeling. As a high school administrator, I continue to work with students daily; however, I often find myself longing to return to the classroom. More often than not I miss teaching. I love to quip saying “If I could turn back time” or “If I could go back now, knowing what I did not know then.” With that said, nostalgia can and regularly brings things into perspective for me. I know that I am a better educator now for the things I have learned down the hallway from the classroom to the administrator’s office. While management can be frustrating, leadership is very rewarding. Managers plan, organize, and coordinate; leaders inspire and motivate. Since my life’s purpose is to raise hell and change the world, I will take a little advice from that brilliant first year teacher mentioned above and lead like every day is my last. Look out, Monday; here I come!
