The past few weeks at this new job have been hectic. I'm trying to figure out how to serve the teachers in 10 different buildings in addition to creating products that will serve the district and the community. Up until this point, I've been serving as a "Mr. Fix-it" for my teachers. I've spent time making projectors work, getting students' log in information working, and struggling to get around to meeting the teachers in my buildings. I've slowly been creating tools for myself that help me organize my time and creating lines of communication between the teachers I serve and my colleague I work with. As we progress to getting our new district web site up and running (which has taken a lot of my time), I realize that that will never be completely done to my liking. But I'm hoping to incorporate all of the information that teachers are making to help other teachers, parents, and students, use and enjoy the technology that is becoming exponentially available. I lose sleep at night thinking about how to do all of the things that are floating around in my head. But I'm excited to add them all to my "to do" list, and slowly chip away at stuff. While I miss my kids in the classroom and the teachers I used to see every day, my job is allowing me to meet new people and see kids that I would have never had the chance to see in action at all levels in Westerville.
If my kids thought "Dad knows everyone in Westerville" before, they have no idea what the next few years hold for them.
Until next time, be good!
- Mr. H
