The power of the universe is awe-inspiring. Last year this was solidified at my core. Last February after an incredible woman told me how her son and his friends thought I should be the next principal of AHS, I started the process to make it happen.
Once I turned in my cover letter and résumé I began to make proclamations to the universe, “I will be the next principal of AHS.” Universe responded and I became the principal.
Last week I said to various people that our wrestling team would beat Williamsburg in the first round of the State Dual Tournament. They did, by 1 point. They finished in fourth place, both at individual state and team state.
This morning I read a fellow school administrator’s blog about anti-bullying and about how schools should be focused on pro-kindness. It reminded me of something Mother Teresa had said, “I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.”
She knew the secret. I find it to be more and more true. When I find myself feeling down, that is how my world is. When I put thoughts and statements of how fortunate I am, amazing things happen.
The pro-kindness is what I want to put into circulation for all around me…especially my students. I need to do a better job for calling on people for the good ways they treat one another.
AHS has AMAZING people within its walls. It is my responsibility to do more to recognize them. I welcome any creative ideas others are willing to share.
Looking forward to being more of a PRO:
