Remember how I talk about my graduate degree and becoming an administrator on a daily basis? Remember how I said my dream has always been to be a principal? This dream spans back to a time before I even had a college degree.
Next school year I will be working as an academic coach for my school district. The position is an administrative role that focuses on improving classroom instruction, strategies, and assessment. In other words, I will help teachers become more effective teachers.
I will miss my junior high position more than words can describe. I go to work every day with a smile on my face. I am one of the few that can say that I love my job. However, when an opportunity aligns with your goals, you have to jump on it.
This new position will bring on a much larger responsibility. My evaluation is directly tied to the school's assessment scores. I will be responsible to lead, support, advise, and collaborate with educators across the curriculum and content. I would like to think of it as a proving ground for becoming the administrator that does the job right.
Cheers to added blessings and opportunities in our lives!
