Did Something I Rarely, Maybe Never Do

Thursday, December 17, 2015

....and I'm feeling guilty. I usually try very hard to solve my own problems without running to an administrator. In fact, I can count on two or three fingers the times I have. I usually keep my mouth shut and try to work it out myself. But....this time-no. I had to take it to the higher level.

I tried with this person. I gave it ample time. The situation started happening last Spring. I let it slide, tried to stay diplomatic. Jumped in and did my job (and theirs). Started up again this Fall.With a big project involving many children I felt it better to complete the project before I took it to an administrator.

So long story long, it only got worse. Last night as the project came to a close I wrote down what I needed and wanted from the administrator. And then I made an appointment, sat down with them, stated my case, and asked for what I needed. I then asked for a timeline that they would be following in order to help me accomplish my goals.

This was not comfortable for either of us and makes me feel guilty and as if I am ruining someone's life. Or they are likely to be very unhappy with me and work to create factions within the staff. Oh well, we are not solely responsible for people's happiness. Please pray that my administrator will do what she said she would do. Meanwhile, I will hold my head up because I spoke honestly being led by the most important factor - the good of the students.

    Thanks so much. Post script - I was assured by my administrator that she would be having a conversation with this person today regarding these challenges. This person called off sick which is standard behavior for her. This leaves us with her students as we are a small school and not able to get last minute subs. I am couching all my dissatisfaction in professional terms. This will probably take a different tone tonight - if ya know what I mean. emoticon
