I was recently leaving my building for a District meeting. On my way out of the building, a student stopped me and asked where I was going. I told him that I needed to go to an important meeting when he asked a key question:
Who’s going to take care of the school?
As I considered my response, I thought about all of the others who lead in the building. The others who take care of the school in different ways.
Many step up regardless of role or title.
I realized that I was quite confident in those I was leaving behind for the afternoon. The school was in very capable hands.
So I shared my answer confidently with the student.
Everyone, of course. Everyone’s going to take care of the school.
