Most embarrassing moment: “Oh my, lots to consider. I was doing a play and had lots of props, scenery, etc. in my room. A student needed something they had left on the counter, which was obstructed by the drama supplies. Rather than move everything, I crawled behind the scenery and onto the counter to retrieve the item. A voice informed me there was a visitor in the room – the principal to do my final observation for the year.
