Be Champions

A couple of years ago, I was asked to be an adjunct professor for two of the universities in the DFW area. I love teaching, and this was my first real opportunity to get into a classroom since I had become a principal, so I jumped at the chance. In the next to last class that I was teaching for aspiring principals, one of the students asked me if I had one piece of advice for them to take into their first administrator position. I spent the next week thinking about what I could/should share with them, and I eventually settled on one message. I wrote it on the back of one of my business cards at the time, and I found that card while cleaning my office in December. This seems like a good time to share it with you.

Be Champions for students.
Be intellectually, morally, emotionally, and
physically engaged in your profession at all times.

I still like the message and believe it. I hope you have a great 2016 doing what you love to do professionally.
