Introduction I have been a public-school educator for 18 years. I started as a middle school language arts teacher and then moved into school leadership as an assistant principal. I’m now in my 11th year as a school leader, currently serving as an elementary school principal in Dublin, Ohio—a community I truly love and feel proud to call home. But like everyone else, I am other stuff, too. I'm a mom of two young children who walk around every day with my heart. I'm the wife to a wonderful man who supports me in my messy job and life. I'm also a daughter, sister, friend, yogi, mentor, teacher, reader, and writer. There's the things I used to be (enthusiastic home cook, avid runner, farm girl); things I wish I could be (dog owner, dead-to-the-world sleeper, financial whiz, perfectly coifed beauty); and things I wish I were not (in turns, I can be grumpy, emotional, frantic, and massive self-doubter). But most of all, I am a learner. I believe every person, action, and significant decision is there to teach us something. I hope to use this blog to share some of those experiences.
