I got my first head director position in a small 3A (no history of success) after 5 years experience as an assistant with different level schools, achieving sweepstakes with a 2C NV and a 2C V, 1s in SR with 3 other NV groups, as well as assisting with successful marching bands. If you get passed over, treat it as an opportunity to learn from someone more experienced. Believe me, you do not want any head position if you are truly not ready yet. Hope this helps!
: Hello YB so here is the situation,
: I am at a fairly small 3A in a very rural
: town. My HD and I have both been here only
: for 1 year. My HD is leaving for many
: different reasons. I have applied for the
: Head job and I am still hoping that I will
: get the top job however it looks like there
: is a chance I will get passed over for a new
: director coming in.
: Again, I am only in my first year here and I
: am relatively young in my career. Is it
: normal to get passed over in this situation?
: If I do get passed over should I be offended
: and take it as not being respected by the
: district and be looking for a new job or is
: this a fairly normal thing in this situation
: and stick it out?
: My head is just reeling in this situation
: and I need some guidance
