The most rewarding part of my job with La Porte ISD was working with the children.
On a daily basis there were lots of smiles, laughs, hugs, handmade gifts from the children, and a lot of support from most parents.
I also worked with some of the finest people I have ever met. The teachers who had a passion for teaching and helping children to learn was very inspiring. I also enjoyed learning from some of the principals that I had the privilege to work for, they were professional, courteous, kind, and caring, not only to the students, but the staff as well. Unfortunately, there were administrators that showed favoritism, they brought their personal problems to work, and were hostile to the point of being totally disrespectful to their employees. Thankfully, the majority of the principals showed what true leadership is all about.
