Congratulations! You Should Be So Proud!

Over the past week, I have had dozens of people—many of them strangers—say to me, "Congratulations! You must be so proud!" Each time, I smile, thank them, and say that, yes, I am, but I also add that I didn't really do anything worthy of being congratulated. I didn't win the championship, I didn't perform in the play or the concert, I didn't even participate in the student cheering section; yet people from around the state and around the country have congratulated me as if I was responsible for some great achievement. I watched, I clapped, I cheered (and I might have yelled at a referee or two), but I did not perform. I feel the same way about being congratulated on my retirement; I do not feel responsible for the transformative work being done at our school, and if I am to be congratulated on anything, it is for having the good sense to get out of the way.
