This is my 4Th attempt at writing this blog. I have erased all previous attempts due to privacy issues. This is one of those stories that when told, would be easy to figure out who I am talking about. Sometimes Google isn't a good thing.
So, I won't bore you with the story, but I will bore you with my dilemma...........I have to make a decision that will directly hurt a colleague of mine. I have to make this decision because it is what is best for the students in my school. I have to do this, but it is breaking my heart.
Leadership is lonely. Leadership is hard. I will do what is right by my students - that I have no doubt, but to do that I have to have the co hones to hurt someone in the process. There is no getting around it. It must be done.
I will do so in the most professional way that I can. I will do so with great respect. I will hurt someone I respect and admire because I know that it must be done to ensure that my students get the best experience they can get................
Do you think those that we hurt know how much we hurt too? Do you think they know it isn't easy to do what is right? Do you think they know how stressed I am to think I have to do it?
My only other question is: how long can I do this job?
