I had my first deans job last night and had to ring a parent which I did straight after school. I find it quite hard to ring people I know, so ringing people I don't know I find really scarey. Technique that works for me is to follow the nike mantra, and just do it. Putting things that scare me off just gives me more time to get more scared.

So I had this long phone call where this parent explained all her difficulties with various government agencies and the school, and by the time I got to the end of it I completely forgot that I had a pastoral meeting after school to go to. The first pastoral meeting I nearly missed because I locked the keys in the car, and now I missed the second one altogether. I seriously need to get my shit together! I figure on missing or stuffing up one more thing before I get in the swing of things.
