Dedication. (say period)

That's why principals do what they do. It's a selfless act to be a principal. The thanks are few and the problems are many. The kids drive me to work and support my teachers. Sometimes, it's tough to do so. I believe that there is a lack of awareness and understanding of the principalship and what he or she does. It's behind the scenes, running interference for the teacher, protecting the kid from an abusive parent, fixing tech problems, discipline, curriculum...and the list goes on. Sometimes it's good to vent. I feel like I'm rambling but heck, sometimes you just get frustrated... but... I know tomorrow some little kid will say "good morning, Mr. Kandel" hug my legs and everything will be better.
