For a split second this morning, I was upset with a teacher. And then just as quickly as I had gotten upset, I was so over-the-moon pleased with that very same teacher for the very same reason I had originally been upset! Our DCFS licensing representative came this morning for our annual review. I went into the classroom just to let the teachers know that she was here and would likely be coming into the classrooms to see them and this teacher just stared at me and shrugged. I don't know what I was expecting, but realistically, her response is exactly what I want.
It doesn't matter who walks into our center, we are providing the highest-quality care possible. We don't put on a show to please a visitor. We do our best for the children and their families. This is so important to me as a director, I cannot express it enough. If we're only putting on a good show for visitors, we aren't making the children our priority.
I love my team.
