Do You Contact Your Legislators?

Typically, whenever I read something telling me I need to contact my legislators, I automatically put my head down, hoping no one will call on me. I realize no one is in the room with me. I just hope someone else will do it. Do you ever feel that way? It's human nature to put off what we don't li...

Motivating the Unmotivated

A few years back, I heard Dr. Robert Brooks speak about motivating the unmotivated student. I enjoyed listening to him and took some notes to help me remember later. Of course, life happened and I moved away and started a new job and forgot about his lecture. While cleaning out some folders recen...

Reflecting

I have tried harder in the past years to journal and do more reflecting, but it still seems to end up where I do most of my reflecting at the end of the calendar year and around my birthday. So, here we are at the end of the calendar year and a new beginning just around the corner. I can't help bu...

What Are You Thankful For?

It's the long Thanksgiving weekend, and so natually I decided to write about what I am thankful for. I'm not going to write about the usual things I am (and should be) thankful for, such as my children, my health and my good friends. I try hard to be grateful for these things all year long and not...

What's the function of that behavior?

I'm surrounded by behaviors that are not always appropriate. I work in an alternative school and with children who are mainly here because their behaviors got them booted out of their home school. I attend many meetings in the districts of our cooperative that are about students and their lack of p...

Got Conflict?

Do you ever have those days where you wonder if there is a sign on your forehead that says "Bring Conflict Here" because it keeps coming up and getting in your face? I've had a couple of those days lately. They can be wearing, can't they? I've heard some administrators say that they avoid conflic...

Remember to Breathe

I'm sitting in my almost empty house which is three hours from my job. My house is for sale and there is an Open House today and so I drove here last night to make sure everything looks OK. The last adult child that was living here moved out two weeks ago. Another adult child stopped by last nigh...

Working With Passive-Aggressive People

I find working with people who are passive-aggressive wearing. I try to get to the source of what is causing them to be sullen or moody, but I can't get a straight answer. Either they say "nothing" is bothering them and "everything is fine" when it is so obviously untrue or there are so many cause...

Building a Reading Program

Now that I'm a 'seasoned' administrator (I have two years in already!! :)), I've decided that instead of trying to fix everything, I'll pick a few goals to really focus on this next year (see how much smarter I'm getting?!?). I want to focus on literacy in our school, especially reading. We are an...

It's Graduation Day!

Today is Graduation Day at our school. We are an alternative school and a small one at that, so we only have seven graduates today. There are others who should be joining this group, but they got sidetracked and will need to return in the fall to try and complete their requirements. We have other...
