I do realize that I may be one of the luckiest men ever in education. In my first meeting with “The Boss” as a rookie principal, I was told the following:
“I hired you to do right by my kids. You take care of them. I’ll take care of the complaints.”
Why I was lucky is because Robert Brezina (The Boss) always ‘walked the talk.’ Brezina didn’t wilt at the first sign of adversity. He welcomed adversity because it meant that he was taking the path less traveled.
If you don’t work for a ‘Brezina’ type of leader, find one as quick as you can.
Think. Work. Achieve.
