Charlie, my neighbor, was a teacher, like you and I. Many years went by and he became an assistant principal. A few years later, he became the acting principal and then he found out he was going to be appointed principal.
Me: Charlie, you know that we can no longer be friends.
Charlie: What do you mean?
Me: I cannot be friends with a principal, sorry.
Charlie: I'm me. I'll always be me no matter what job I
Me: We'll see.
Two months passed and I ran into Charlie again.
Charlie: You were right. I changed. The job forces you to
do things you wouldn't ordinarily do.
I have received e-mails and comments from people who want me to go back to my honest and open comments on the administration and teachers at Packemin HS.
Sorry, I can't do that. I am enjoying not being on the administration's hate list. It might not last because I get pissed off pretty easily but as long as nothing affects me directly, there will be nothing negative here. But, when there is something good, I will write that. I'm not sucking up. I'm just giving credit where credit is due. For those of you who don't like that, stop reading and write your own blog.
