Quote of the Week
“….I firmly believe that any man’s finest hours – his greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”
By - Vince Lombardi
The Good Stuff!
Me favorite quote of all time (above) speaks to hard work, dedication and FINISHING STRONG!
Obviously, our field of battle is in the classroom. I know you work tirelessly for the good cause of a student's education. You will be exhausted. It is not easy, no matter what type of student you are working with.
Now is the time to dig deep, lean on each other for support and FINISH STRONG!
By continuing to do that, we will be able to look ourselves in the mirror and hold our heads high because we know we gave it our all. We went the extra mile when it was needed; we showed restraint when it was needed; we expressed empathy when it was needed and we displayed grit when it was needed.
That is how we FINISH STRONG! That is how we achieve our "victory"!
Awesome Video By Mike Smith
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Mike Smith, he is a partner with Jostens who is unbelievably talented and has a great way of connecting with staff and students. We have sent several teachers and student groups to see him speak.
