If you are lucky enough to work in a school with a fabulous secretary , the school will run like a well oiled machine. The secretary has a certain amount of magic that tells her where everything is, where it should be, and where it will be. Your mail gets magically delivered every day, just like Lucky Charms. You get phone messages, (Of course you tell your doctor to text as not to tie up the phone.) This marvelous secretary single-handedly improves moral by having Chocolate, you heard that right, Chocolate, on her counter. (contributions accepted). She invents contests and makes games out of mandatory tasks to make them enjoyable and fun. For instance, you'll get a prize if you're the first one to hand in certain paperwork. You have to be there to appreciate how hysterical this is.
Another reason our secretary is so special is that she copies the pages of school supply ordering and makes a packet for teachers to use, in June, to order supplies for the next school year. Then we all get together by grade level and order white- out, staples, paper clips, Dry Erase markers and small boards, paper, pencils, erasers, crayons, and anything else that is useful. At every other school I have been in, I have purchased most of these items by myself. As if this wasn't wonderful enough, every once in a while you will go to your mailbox and discover colored markers, special erasers, Gym equipment, and other awesome, useful materials. It's like a holiday! Except it's like several holidays, and who doesn't like surprises!
Obviously, I am talking about our dear Mrs. Mullen. She keeps secrets. I don't know what these secrets are because I've never heard her tell any. She keeps track of who hands in what, which in and of itself, falls into the miracle category. Having the neatest and best organized desk in the school puts us all to shame. Mrs. Mullen, the one and only is a single-handed stress reducer which benefits everyone.
Mrs. Mullen arrives at school every day at 7 o'clock, She works hard while some of us are still sleeping. She organizes everything she needs for the school day. PLUS, while most secretaries are hiding in the office at the start of the day, Mrs. Mullen helps with Bus Duty both before and after school. She is exceptionally funny and puts everyone in a fabulous mood. Hooray for Mrs. Mullen!
It is with great pleasure we celebrate Mrs. Mullen with accolades for being the world's best secretary. We hope you have a brilliant year with much happiness always!
