Figured I'd do the movie one, too:

I Hate Change!

Found out today that my boss, who I have loved working with/for, is being moved to another job in the school district. Instead of being our Principal, he's going to be Director of something-or-other. And on top of that miserable change (yeah, I know - it's probably going to be a good change for him - just sucks for us!), we're also losing our Assistant Principal, who we all adore, and who was at our school when it opened... She's being moved to another middle school.
One of the teachers said it best; this is like losing both of your parents! :-(
I don't understand why the District moves people the way it does, without real reason...
Of the people we're getting as replacements, I have not heard great things about the Principal we're getting, so I'm just going to cross my fingers & do my job (and bite my tongue. A lot.)
The Assistant Principal we're getting is a better situation. She actually used to teach at our school, and I really like her. So at least we'll have her...
So, I'm not at all happy about losing the two people we're losing, and I'm not thrilled about one of the incoming people, and God, I hate changes!!! , but at least one of the newcomers is a good one. So that's that.

And A Fun Time Was Had By All...

Our school recently held a Talent Show. At first, when they were putting it together, even close to the day of the show, things weren't looking so great. We figured, what the hell - it's a middle school talent show - it doesn't have to be anything but fun.
But let me tell you - those kids pulled together a fantastic show - we have some very talented (and very brave!) students at our school! There was singing, there was dancing, there was even a mini fashion show. Very creative kids we have around here!
Some of the faculty even performed a band act for the finale - what a blast!
I hope that we will continue to have these shows at our school - it was such a great time (and I was just in the audience), we had a terrific turnout, and our kids should be very proud of themselves.
The teacher who did most of the work for this show deserves a standing ovation - she did a hell of a job!
