The other BIG stories of the last 2 weeks included a 2nd interview for a principal's position. I was 1 of 3 finalists and I actually interviewed with the local district's superintendent. Since school started on Tuesday, and although I have yet to receive 1 of those "Thanks for applying, but..." letters, I think it is safe to say I didn't get the job! Being an assistant principal these last few days has been a killer! I keep telling myself that all this experience is going to pay off 1 day!
Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to share my art and adventures as an administrator with others. Thank you for making the time to view my blog and giving me your input.

I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I last blogged! The last 2 weeks have been brutal! We finally moved into our new place. And we have settled into the space pretty well. The first 2 days were pretty chaotic with an endless sea of boxes every which way you turned. In the last 2 weeks, besides the BIG move, we have been dealing with my mother's declining health. My mom was in the hospital for 2 weeks. This last Tuesday, we brought her home. She is now doing a hospice at home. Because of her frail health, there is not much that the doctors can do for her except make her as comfortable as possible. Besides the move and my mother being in and out of the hospital, a friend and colleague from Garfield died too. I attended his funeral this past week. Luis was 36 and had been battling a brain tumor/cancer for the last 2 years. He was a very special young man and just a terrific human being.
