I was accepted into the leadership institute for my school district next year. I applied because I want to learn techniques to help my editors become better leaders at the same time I learn to be a better leader. I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about administration. My job is a lot like admin already. The biggest difference, I think, would be who I work with. Admin works more with the adults in the system. I’m not sure what I think about that. I LOVE my students. 🙂 The leadership institute will help me make the decision.
It makes me wonder where I want to be in five years. I know writing is part of the answer. Published is another part. But I have no goals for the day job other than to be the best adviser I can be.
DD went to her ultra conservative grandma’s Thursday night and came home with blue black hair. When I was 18, I did something strange with my hair and my mom yelled across a parking lot: Mary Elizabeth Hagberg, I hate your hair. I think part of the anger might’ve been because she caught me and my friends skipping school, but still, the parking lot was crowded. Life sure is strange sometimes. 🙂
