#MASSPchat 12/19 - The Holiday Season (Take Care of Yourself!)

The Topic:
School administrators have incredibly challenging jobs and every year around this time, I start to think about how nice it will be to celebrate Christmas and take time to be with family and rejuvenate. I hope that you will all have the opportunity to take advantage of some much needed rest over the next few weeks. It not only healthy to take breaks, but it is also healthy to think about how administrators take care of themselves during the school year.
