So, there goes normal

Guys, I've never been known as a positive person. But in the last year or so, I've tried really hard to be one. And things have really worked out in my favor. And I felt that it stemmed from the positivity (is that even a word? because blogger doesn't think so!) that I added to my life.

I was so excited to head back to work. To see my kids and hear about their Christmas. To have a para to help me deal with the crazyness of 23 first graders. To talk with my team and my principal and vice principal.

First day back went great! Second day the whole school gets called into a meeting with district big wigs and I realized quickly something was up. We get told we have a new principal. Say WHAT?? Since the meeting, reasons have come out but I just don't know what to think.

So now I don't know what to expect. And I HATE the unknown. To make matters worse, this is the THIRD time this has happened to me; an administrator leaving or getting removed in the middle of the year. I'm on my 6th principal in 6 years (eight if you count the two interim ones!). I love my new school and I have a new love for my job, so I'm hoping that our new school leader helps that love to continue. Just hard to shake that feeling of dejavu you know?

I'm trying SO hard to be positive. I don't want to go back to my cloud of negativity. Life is better when you see things half full. But this year has been full of surprises, good ones and crazy ones. I know this is test a for me, and I really hope I pass.

Send good thoughts my way please?


  1. Oh no, I hope everything works itself out!
    Change can be as good as a rest!

  2. Sending good thoughts your way! We have had multiple weird occurrences in the schools I work at this year.

  3. Ugh, I totally feel yah girl! I would feel the EXACT same... And I too hate the unknown! I'm hoping that things go smoothly and that this new principal takes control right away and ends up being a great leader! I can't believe you have had that many different admin's the last few years, that is crazy!

    Good luck tomorrow girly, i'll be thinking of you! :)


Thanks for leaving me some love!
