...and another week gone, but not forgotten !! The Monday holiday was quite a blessing, might I add. The remainder of the week was routine...meaning that I hear, "Mrs. Southern...I have a question..." at LEAST every five minutes...sometimes more. Generally the questions are pretty easy to handle. It's when I hear an adult utter the words, "Mrs. Southern, we have an issue..." that my blood runs cold. Oddly, the issue is usually no big deal, but the seriousness of the tone and the looks on the faces of the adults with the "issues" causes me a split second of terror. Not quite sure how to address this particular challenge just yet. Perhaps it's my own insecurity as a new principal causing the moments of terror. I know not...Any ideas?
