Interim – Day 7 – pause

Over a weekend I interviewed and successfully gained the position of Interim Head of Special Education at my High School. The position is short term, 10 days in length, but could be extended until the end of the semester.

I have been in Special Education for over a decade, but this is my first position of responsibility in this department.

These posts are going to focus on the ideas and questions that popped up on the daily.

Some got answered, some are still in process. Most questions I had some clue how to action, but even more have me chasing squirrels to find answers.

LIVING THE QUESTIONS [IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER]

Getting some whiplash from shifts between big picture, little picture, and picture in picture perspectives.

Sometimes it’s ‘who ya know’ and sometimes it’s ‘how ya know them’.

There is no spare moment.

“Hey hi, could I just ask a quick question?”

Thank you. Really. Thank you.

How can I make our department meeting shorter?

“That depends…”
