An interesting e-mail

One of the really rewarding experiences during my administrative career has been serving as an “editorial advisor” for the National Association of Elementary School Principals. I am completing two years of a three-year commitment. On a regular basis, the 10 editorial advisors spread across the U.S. are asked to comment on articles in NAESP’s various publications, make suggestions for future publications, and write book reviews for publication in Principal magazine. In my case, I was asked to write an article on blogging. That article appeared in the Nov/Dec issue.

One afternoon, the following e-mail message came in:
From: editorialadvisors-bounces@naesp.net on behalf of Vanessa St. Gerard [vstgerard@naesp.org]
Sent: Tuesday, March 14, 2006 12:53 PM
Subject: [Editorial Advisors] Submission for Nov/Dec Principal

Hello, everyone,

Lee Greene and I have a writing opportunity that we think both you and our readers will enjoy. The theme for the November/December issue of Principal is The 24-Hour Principal. In addition to our theme articles, we would like each of our editorial advisors to submit a short piece, describing a typical day.

Vanessa St. Gerard
Managing Editor, Publications
(703) 518-6252 (p)
(703) 548-6021 (f)
National Association of Elementary School Principals S
erving All Elementary and Middle Level Principals
1615 Duke St., Alexandria, VA 22314

My first thought was simply to write about THAT day, complete with its highs and lows. That is exactly what I wound up doing. The post which follows is the piece submitted to the editors. They may shorten, do some re-writing, etc., but here is the original for you to get a sneak peek.
