Introduction

This is the introduction to a podcast that pulls the curtain back on education.  Coming to you in the middle of the COVID-19 health pandemic, many parents are experiencing the growing pains of what it means to be a teacher.  How can I get this kid to listen to me?  Do they really have to know how to multiply fractions?  When was the last time I multiplied fractions as an adult?  When is an acceptable time to have wine?

Being a principal is weird.  You spend your day putting on so many different hats:  solving bathroom mysteries (what IS that in the corner), handwriting analysis on dropped notes, conflict resolution, and even vomit patrol.  I spend 90% of my day doing the last bullet point of my contract - other duties as assigned.

Join me on this journey to learn more about what happens in the principal's office because I'm guessing it's not what you expect.

Other Duties As Assigned > Episode 2 - The Woman, The Myth, The Legend - Cathy Lyons

This week I introduce you to the most important part of Catholic education - tradition!  Each school has its' own thing, whether it's an event, fundraiser, or special day.  There is a reason we love our uniforms so much and it's because we've had them for 45 years!
