He Warned Me

A shout-out" to my colleague
Mr. Griffin Groves for
introducing this title to me.  

He warned me that I would cry; I did.
Barbara Park gave us all a treasure with
this story.  You owe it to yourself and to your
customers to read it and talk about it in class.

Thank You


I feel blessed to be among staff members
and friends who value one another
 while serving the needs of our kids.  

They are heroes in every way!

"Choose actions and deeds
that inspire others rather than 
 spending your energy on impressing 
the people around you.  Barbara is correct!"

They Matter...."Quietly"

We all know a child who's quiet. 

They're undoubtedly listening &
 focusing upon the conversation or people around them.  

Ask a question and most likely, their hand is not "waving wildly" in the air to prove 
that they have the answer.  

That's alright by me.
