The Guardian has a daily section to its editorial called, 'In praise of...' They then do exactly that - write an article in praise of some thing or some one.
With that spirit in mind, I'm going to weigh in with a post in praise of the Principal at Ali bin Abi Taleb School.
His name is Mohammed and he has been the Principal for 6 years. I've known him since November last year. He's quiet, very astute, very tuned in to the pulse of the school, excellent at relationships, and a dedicated teacher with a fine sense of humour. The nicest thing I've heard about him is a comment from one of the teachers who said that Mohammed gives him comfort and the confidence to be a better teacher.
Here we are in a highly stylised situation - I needed some photos of Mohammed and me working on some professional development work so we had to interrupt our actual PD session to pose for some photos.
Love and peace - Wozza
