Today, it is my job! I am the principal of a small middle school/high school for grades 7-12 in Colorado. My staff is the most amazing collection of human beings I have ever had the pleasure to know. They are energetic and love every student. I have the hugest smile on my face every day!
Today, they collaborated to build our master schedule. They are such problem solvers! I introduced them to the "Hack Mindset" that is part of a fellowship I have been doing called "School Retool." They rocked it!
I talked with them about how every child begins with a dream: ballerina, rocket scientist, president, NBA player...and somehow, for many of them, that dream gets lost in the "Myth of 'Can't'". We talked about Steph Curry (73 wins?!?! What?!?!). I charged them to refer to themselves as Dreambuilders--because they are. They. Are. Amazing.
Our new slogan for next year: Go For It. Be Steph Curry.
I hope you got your happy on today! Be blessed!
