A Day Which Will Live in Infamy

leadershipOn this day, 9 years ago, I became a school administrator. I was 4 months into my first year as an AP in an elementary school. I assisted in saving the life of an older gentleman through CPR and AED. He collapsed in the main office 10 minutes before lunch time on a Friday. I had to coordinate EMT, 1st graders, parents, cafeteria staff, and breaking the news to my music teacher that it was her husband who sustained the heart attack.

Remember, God does not choose the qualified, he qualifies the chosen. When leadership is thrust upon you, take that opportunity, run with it, and trust your training, relationships, and education to see you through. But, most importantly, never lose what’s truly important in any leadership role…serving people to make them better than when you met them. You have no other role.
