Though I am still most definitely in the apprenticeship of my new position, I have been given some liberty to take the reins and steer the beast. Today, I am most grateful for the opportunity to feel some ownership at the school as opposed to feeling like I am just trying to keep my head above water. While I know that I have so much to learn about being a team leader, today was the first day on the job that I felt like my fresh perspective on the school is actually being taken into consideration.
That feeling of ownership and responsibility has been such an amazing motivator for me, and I am grateful for the feeling that I am finally starting the wheels in motion after so many months of transition. I am looking forward to getting down to business and making things happen!
