Back in the Saddle - for a while

The modular classroom in the background is new to the school, built because BC now has full time Kindergarten so instead of a K morning and a K afternoon class, there are now two full day Ks at the school. The building isn't too bad… a far cry from the portable classrooms of the 80s, many of which are still in use.

You may have noticed that I have been at this school a few times in past couple of weeks. That has now changed for me as the district has asked if I will assume the duties of principal there for the next 6 weeks while the current principal is on leave.

I got my feet wet today with Bill 33 meetings, staffing discussions, maintenance and budget news ... lots to learn and get up to date with. Then there is a return to evening meetings and paperwork to go the board office. Certainly a lot more than being in charge for a day here and there.

So, no more ducking in to have some fun and ducking out again. Well, maybe not, I'm very excited about being there for the next 6 weeks. And, I am sure a lot of my future photos will revolve around that. As well, my twitter feed (@gibsonsgolfer) will move away from golf and cooking and more back to education things I need to learn from my network.

It's going to be great.

Sounds like you have a nice six weeks ahead of you. Am interested in learning more about the modular classroom. Can you point me to additional information?
