It doesn’t help that the person who had the job previously was here for 16 years and a graduate of the school. She knew things just because she knew them. They aren’t written down and people don’t know she did them until I don’t. For a person who likes to be organized and on top of things, it’s nerve wracking. Every time I think I have one thing figured out, here’s a list of other things I didn’t do. And for a person who is their greatest critic, it’s demoralizing.
The other day, a colleague asked me into her office to talk about our schedules. My response was, “What did I forget this time?” She ignored my little comment and asked for some help with a few class transitions.
The next morning, this same colleague stopped me on the way into school. She said she had been thinking about my comment and assured me that everyone on our team thought I was doing a wonderful job! How I needed that!
