OAESA - Educational Leadership

I am going back to school for my administrative degree.

In my 25 years of teaching I have worked with many administrators. Some have been great, others horrible, and the most somewhere in between. I believe students, especially now, need leadership. Fair, unbiased, and compassionate principals.

I want to give this a try. I want to work in a district that wants and needs someone like me. I want to work with the staff who is passionate about the children and their content area. I want to be in a district that mirrors society. Diverse groups of people from all ethnic backgrounds, cultures, religion, and walks of life.

The first step was making the decision, now I must put in the work. I will be busy, you might not hear from me much in the fall, but know I am still here. I will stop by to share stories, updates on my social life (lol), and of course fabulous wedding inspiration posts under the #WeddingWednesday section.

15 - Quince

You would have 15 years old today. Probably waking up and getting ready for football practice at the high school. I imagine you being tough and playing dirty, but planning everything out like me.

I would insist on putting energy bars in your bag, plus two water bottles. You are a growing young man. You would be tall y muy guapo.

Your sister would text you Happy Birthday from Chicago. You would reply back with a funny picture. Both of you are funny.

I would be making a list of your favorite foods to buy at the grocery store. Today (and always) you would eat like a king. My baby boy.

I love you. I miss you. I know you are watching us from Heaven. One day I will hug you and tell you how much you mean to me in person.

Take care.
