As an administrator and educator, one word that has been stated over and over by me as changes have continually met us during this pandemic is “PIVOT.” As I watched the episode of “Friends” in early July, it hit me, that while they were trying to move the couch and were yelling “PIVOT” there was no space to do the needed pivoting. As we move through the start of school, as an administrator, I need to remember to give my teachers the space to PIVOT. I also need to give myself the space as well. In turn we give students that same space. I also hope that parents will give us the grace and space to “PIVOT” as well. No one has been in this place, and if we are going to move the “couch” of learning, we are going to need the space t “PIVOT!”
