Get Whitt it!
If you call one wolf, you invite the pack.
Check your scales...
I loved that...and then I looked down at what I most cared about versus where I put my time & energy and wow...what an imbalance!
Please remember that we have the very best job in the world...we have a job where we CARE...for a living. It is also a very stressful job, one that can personally exhaust all of you, if you let it! You have to take care to balance your world and make sure that you take time for what matters to you. I was quite sad to see all that I had listed on the caring side...that wasn't reflected equally on the where I'm giving side.
Just like on the airplane where they tell you to put YOUR oxygen mask on first, I want you to take care of YOU!
To help promote a grateful heart and our Wylie Way core values, the bulletin board across from the library will be a place where we can share for what we are grateful through or Thanksgiving holiday. We will draw one of the teacher slips when we get back for a 1/2 day off before Christmas...so share something each day! Slips will be in your boxes on Friday, and there will be a table set up where parents and students can contribute as well. (No days off for them!)
Fare thee well and sad tears...
We've hired Alyssa Robinson, who will be joining our team next Wednesday. Please welcome her to our Whitt family!
Readworthy for the week
(if you only read one, read this one!)
(I completely want to orders copies of this book...anyone interested???)
Happy Birthday to YOU!
