Although there are a lot of changes going on the in public school system right now with implementing a new common core curriculum and teacher assessment system, there are some highlights to the stressful, ever-changing events in my day. I feel that I should take a few moments to mention why everything runs as smoothly as is does in our school district.
His name is Randy Bryan. He is an avid sports fan, a devout Christian, and a role-model for every student who enters his hallways. I have been very blessed to work in a facility with a fantastic boss. I have never really worked anywhere that I thought of my boss as a personal friend, and although I really like my boss, he maintains a level of professionalism that would place him in the category of friendly, but authoritative. This denotes the first thing about my boss that I respect: he is very professional. He is friendly, honest, and available to consult with all of his staff. Anytime there is a conflict between colleagues or parents at the school, he brings everyone together and finds a way to resolve the issue.
A second thing that I love about my boss is his integrity. He is a devout Christian man who is more than happy to share his moral values without being judgmental or overbearing. He is honest, fair, and a great listener. He gives the best advice, and even though his advice generally has religious undertones, he never forces his beliefs onto anyone and never judges anyone. My boss is the kind of man who has an open door policy. I am never afraid to go to him and discuss any problem, either professional or personal. He believes that family comes before work. He will have co-workers join together to help anyone who needs to be off for medical problems, and creates an environment where we all want to help each other because we know we will have help in return if we ever need it. I can honestly say that his leadership creates a strong bond between all of his employees.
Finally, the third thing about my boss that makes him great is his work ethic. My boss loves his school district. He attends almost all of the sporting events at the school, schedules meetings simply to inform his employees what is going on in the district and to boost morale, has monthly potlucks during lunch for his employees, and has a smile and kind word for everyone. He remembers things that you tell him about your personal life and always makes a point to see how things are going. The turnover rate in my school district is almost non-existent because no one could find another boss as great as Mr. Bryan. Although, I never really take the time to tell him he is doing a great job, I wanted to make sure I let everyone know that he is a great boss.
