I am not a person that is easily influenced, nor am I easily inspired. So when I was asked to talk about a person who influenced me, or rather inspired me, two
came to mind. D*** H***. Better known as Mr. H***, the principal of my high school. This year, there was a change in administration throughout the school district. At the high school were fortunate enough to acquire as Mr. H*** as our new principal.(This sentence is kind of weird)
I never knew what we were missing until he took office; he brought a whole new spirit to the school. It is obvious that he enjoys his job very much, and although I do not plan on entering the education field, I want to have the passion he has for his job, no matter what I end up doing.
Every morning, the first thing every student sees
is Mr. H***'s sincere smiling face
, as they walking
up the main steps. No matter it is
It could be raining, hailing, sleeting, snowing, or all of those combined,
and you would
still find him standing out there with his signatured(not very sure about this)
smile. Before every break, he walks to every classroom and wishes everybody a safe and happy break, and he makes an effort to show up at the majority of school affairs. The reason why I bring up these occurrences is because many people say that, "the love is in the little things" , which I strongly agree with. By him taking time out of his demanding schedule to show his face and be an active member of the school's community shows how dedicated he is to the school. He gives his full effort to whatever task he undertakes, whether it is greeting the students or organizing an emergency meeting.
As a senior, I have been able to really experience the difference because I have experienced life before him.(not sure what is this sentence mean)
Mr. H*** fosters an environment where people want to do better. Personally, he has done a lot for me. I remember one morning, I was having a pretty rough start.
Let's just say everything that could go wrong was.(kind of too unofficial) To my surprise, he pulled me aside and sincerely asked me what was wrong,
and he was really sincere about it. He gave me five minutes of his personal time to vent, and not once did he try and brush me off. It is rare that you find someone with his responsibilities to notice that something is not right, and try and make it better. If I see someone in the hallway that is down, I offer them a pair of ears to listen. I will
be grateful for the five minutes he gave me, his care
he made me feel like a person instead of an obligation.
The love he has for his job shines through every day and the school has benefited tremendously. He has showed me that everything deserves a person's full attention and dedication, no hatter how mundane or spectacular the task may be. There should be no discrimination towards anything you do in life. When I catch myself doing something haphazardly, I think about Mr. H*** and his attitude toward whatever he does. His way of living has influenced me to be someone who cherishes all the opportunities I am given, and never do something without giving it all of my effort.
