We are having our wrap up meeting for our district wide show on Tuesday.
There were many "minor" problems with the show that needed fixing. I was
able to fix many of them using the Getty ArtEd Talk list principle, "Do unto
other as you would have others do unto you". I solved many others just by
sending floods of e-mail so I finally would get an answer (smile). I am
having so much fun now. I know I will never get the other "seasoned" staff
members to admit the error of their ways....I am going to share joining the
list again to them so they can see themselves...and enjoy this caring and
sharing. Our new staff member had absolutely no problems this year with the
show and she is very appreciative of my efforts. I worked hard to please her
and to welcome her. I see these two quotes that were posted the other day
"If it's a good idea . . . go ahead and do it. It is much
easier to apologize than it is to get permission."
--Grace M. Hopper
"There are no victims...Just volunteers" (I know this was on the list but I
couldn't find who said it). Let those who think they are "walking all over
you" know how much you enjoy the hard work...that really gets them....see? I
am having fun.
I just wanted to let you know how my Easter Greeting at school worked,
too....with great success! Don't ever think you can not make a difference in
the way we as staff members treat one another. I don't really care about the
administrators...they are supposed to cause me grief (smile). I am a royal
pain to mine....but I really think that is what he likes about me.
If you are reading Gina...I will get to you soon....still trying to help
others....just keep on smiling.
Janice I know you are out there....you would not believe how nice I was to
one of our staff members when I got a nasty e-mail.....I actually won her
over. See...you were just a student teacher and you have more wisdom than
many seasoned teahers. I have been at this (teaching) for many years and am
still learning......and becoming stronger all the way.
I am ending with more words of wisdom. Be careful who you complain to....and
know who you can trust. It just takes time to know.
