If you ever want to know why it is that things always seem to take so long to process at a school site, come and spend time in the office. There are many things that go on - parents dropping in, phone calls about things that seem quite random, student issues with behavior and un-wise choices -- it's been an experience. Sitting in the office for a day or shadowing an administrator will give you a diferent idea of what it takes to be successful. You need to be able to juggle, multi-task and have very strong boundaries so that you can tend to your own family at home. It's amazing what happens in one day!
