Education is full of challenges. Change itself is challenging. One of the first differences I noticed this past year as an educator moving from a classroom teacher to a site administrator (I am an elementary school principal) is that the challenges I face in my new position are different.
These challenges are different because they are more varied than the challenges I faced as a classroom teacher. To me (and to clarify), the word different does not have a negative connotation, it simply means that the challenges I face as an administrator are distinct and separate from those I faced as a classroom teacher.
