We're losing another administrator. We keep losing great ones because they move up and on to wonderful things. It's fabulous for them. But it always hurts a bit.
I get it, change is hard. Unless an administrator is widely disliked (unlikely at our school, luckily) we don't want to see them go. Then, after they do, we are left filling their shoes. That's always uncertain, scary, iffy.
Right now feels like an exceptionally bad time for this. On the whole, our administration (a principal and two assistant principals) is pretty new still. So a change in it seems more shaky than normal.
Plus we're immensely overcrowded and that's impacting everything. People are fragile. More so than I've ever seen at this school.
And I know the power of the administration. It makes or breaks a school.
So I'm holding my breath, crossing my fingers, and searching for four leaf clovers.
