Re: New Chapter...Or New Book?
About 15 years ago, I opened a new school, first two years very similar situation, then it grew very fast. About two months in, I was completely down in the dumps, teaching 9 and 10 graders who were on a sub non 7th grade band level. Went in to visit with the Principal, who was just finishing meeting with the head football coach/ AD. What he said, has always stuck with me - he asked how my family was... how I was... what fun things I had planned for my family... then asked if I was receiving a paycheck every two weeks... He then reminded me that it was not the students fault they were not the best players and there were not more of them. For what ever reason - the order in which he asked those questions stuck with me. So the suggestion is to keep things in priority and it will all work out. Best of luck.
