    Reminds me of my last principal before I retired. I usually say the impetus for retiring was my elderly mother needing a lot of attention and the rotator cuff damage I received from a 350+ lb. special ed student....but a significant factor was also the narcissistic sociopath that had just taken the principal position. I think a record number of outstanding teachers retired or transferred after his first year.
