I am thankful for accurate recored keeping. Mine. I know I can get a little crazy about details and calendaring and to-do lists…. And I sometimes drive my friends and family crazy with it all….  but today…. I am so thankful for it. Those records caught a $110 error.


  1. I think you are absolutely right, Shayna! I am a bit paranoid that way too, but with good reason! When I was a Deputy Principal, our County Council used to deal with school finances. Then, just as I became a Principal, the decision was made by the Government that all schools should have their own total budgets and run them themselves. At that point, I took on a Bursar and made sure that she had a ‘foot in both camps’ – both in school and at County level. Many schools didn’t do this! At one point during my years as Principal, she found £5000 (I think at the time that was around $10000) that we had not been allocated that we were entitled to! So, it is important to keep track, just as you obviously do! Well done!



    • Wow! That’s a lot of money…. especially for a school! I’m not sure where I figured out the wisdom in keeping my own records… but I hope my daughter learns it, too. People mean well, but they err. I don’t want to be, or her to be, left with the short stick when it does. I’m glad for your students you also had the foresight. 🙂
