10 Years as an Assistant Principal

I have having one of those morning that feels like the quiet before the storm, and it has given me some time to think, catch up on some reading, and reflect on ten years as an assistant principal. I have no way of measuring or figuring out how many discipline conversations that I have had in a decade. Yesterday was a heavy day, and I talked to 30 students about a variety of things big and small, but my biggest revelation of the week is that I have supervised over 5000 lunch periods. All of them had more than 150 students and some had 300 plus students. It is an amazing number, and it climbs again at 11:11 a.m. this morning.
