So Much To Learn Yet

21 Dec

You know my name, but not my story.

You’ve heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.

Have you taken the time to think this through. Each day I encounter a child in the hallway I say “Hello” or “Good Morning”. Many of these students don’t even know my name. I am not a classroom teacher, I am a “specialist”. I work with the teachers to help the children succeed. I believe it all begins the moment they see you each day. You decide what kind of day you will have. You can teach the children the same thing. We all have a name, but more importantly we all have a story. How many teachers take the time to know that story. Some children come with a “history”….but remember it’s just that his/her story…

The responsibility lies in the hands of each adult to remember that each new day is a new beginning. A time to leave behind the mistakes of yesterday and learn the lessons of today. Today can not begin with a judgement because it sets everyone up for failure…those who judge and those that are being judged.

Take the time to learn “his story”….it will give you a whole new perspective.



Hello world!

9 Dec

As my first post I would like to start out by simply saying hello!

I am always going to be first and foremost a mother. I have two wonderful children who complete my world. My second role in life is being the wife of the most loving, caring, understanding, and grounding husband anyone could ask for. My third role in life is to be a member of this wonderful world and play a positive part in it.

I want to spend each day doing everything possible to make sure that the affect that I have upon everyone I meet is positive, supportive and guiding. Whether they are an adult or child in the world of education or just someone I encounter in my every day experiences, I believe completely in the philosophy of “pay it forward”.

I have always been able to get out of life exactly what I put into it and sometimes more.
