What I, Zubin, learned about being Head of School is that it is not easy. I used to think that being a student is much harder but now I think they are about the same. If you are a Head of School you have to send emails to teachers and parents, have meetings with teachers and alot of other things. This was a good experience because I learned all about the hard stuff about being principal. For example, one teacher asked for a steak lunch and many students wanted me to get them pizza. It is hard to give the whole school pizza and all the teachers a steak lunch from Morton’s. Making decisions is hard.
Although, there is some fun stuff too. You get to visit the classrooms, tell students to stop doing bad things and shake people’s hands in the morning. Many students liked that there was no homework for tonight and many liked the sports themed tag day. Those decisions were fun because it is nice to do things like this every once in a while.
When you’re Head of School you have to make some tough decisions. I really liked the job though. It was really fun. I hope I can do it again in 2 or 3 years. This was a great experience!
