Related to the post, “PowerWalks – Part 3,” a LYS Principal shared the following with me.
Right before school ended for the year I visited a LYS Principal for a debriefing and planning meeting. As soon as I walked in his office he said, “You will not believe this.”
He reached in his desk and pulled out a DVD and said, “It was just like the blog.”
I then noticed that it was a DVD of “The Hangover” and said, “You’re kidding?”
“Nope. I was out doing my regular walk-thru’s and I opened the classroom door and the entire class is sitting there watching the movie.”
“What did you do?”
The Principal said, “I did just like the blog said to do. I took the movie out, asked the teacher out in the hallway and told him to go home. Then I called HR and they gave him his walking papers. But here’s the kicker, the teacher got mad at me and cussed me out.”
This is darn near the perfect case of a Principal stepping in to protect a class, his school and our profession. So, to this principal, that’s the way to step up and be a leader (on multiple levels). You made the LYS Nation proud.
Think. Work. Achieve.
