Good News Maybe

My principal is one Of the best four principals I have ever met, told me she Saw her budget, and the counselor For her school (our school if you include me) Gets a counselor for 4 days next year, not 5. Which means, if I am the counselor, I would Have to be in another school one day a week Next year. Ugh! Some of the schools are pretty Awful. I’m such a powder puff, I’d be running out With crying eyes by 8:15 in some of these schools, And they don’t even start until 9. My Principal (M.P. for short) M.P. spoke with the second only to the TOP The Big Top- the Superintendent himself, And she said that they need me here Next year, and it has to be 5 days A week, because I mean this much To her and our school. I am so grateful! And optimistic because the counselors often do not know what school They get until Saturday night at 9 The week before school starts.

It is one of my three favorite schools, as I have been to five.

Good for you Caren. You must be a great counselor to have people believe in your worth. It doesn't get better than that.

Thank you; I was so overwhelmed with love, I forced the principal to get out of her giant wonderful cushy principal chair and let me give her a hug. I threw in an "I love you" too, because I do.
