Slice of Life Day 22

Yesterday we met the young man who will be our new principal to lead us into the future.  Our current beloved principal is retiring, somewhat reluctantly because he is 68 years old, not that you would ever know that.  I have had 5 principals in my career, and struggled with most of them.  Even if they meant well their criticism usually was painful.  Our current principal has always been kind and friendly and we have all blossomed and grown under his positive leadership.  It truly shows what a difference good leadership can have on a school and its teachers.  What a blessing he has been to us.  Thankfully the new young man promises to have the same qualities.  Looking forward to the future as we honor the past!


  1. I too have had quite a few principals through the years. It certainly does make a difference.
    So glad you have had kindness bestowed your way.
    I hope the future will be just as good.

  2. What a nice tribute to your principal. Will you share this slice with him?

  3. Change is hard for me so when we get a new administrator, it's stressful. I've had many wonderful principals, and a few that were less than wonderful. I'm glad to hear your new leader has potential. : )
