It's been one of those weeks that has flown by... blown away by the wind and the wonderful people I have managed to get to see and spend time with. People continually tell me that I am too positive and too optimistic... I am not really sure what the alternatives are... there is already enough negativity and pessimism around. I am not sure what messages you give your colleagues if you constantly see the problems, the drawbacks and the mistakes... I constantly see opportunities, ways to learn and develop, the potential to do more and better things for children and young people here in Leeds. We want all our young people to be happy, healthy, safe and increasingly successful. Taught, coached, mentored and supported by talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues in brilliant learning places. Is that too much to hope for...
