The Eighth Time's a Charm?

Our principal has decided not to return. That means next year I'll be on my 8th principal in 8 years at the same school. I'll be the first one to admit that it's a hard school to work at, but at least two of these people knew exactly what they were getting into. I'm not really willing to cut them a lot of slack because my kids are suffering for it. They NEED some consistency, partly because our school is never going to get anything to work if we keep re-starting every year and partly because the kids need to know that someone loves them and values them enough to spend more than a year on them.

I get so angry. Of all the kids who need people to stick around...
