2. Changes/Hires:

Dawn Wertz will be joining our 3rd Grade team. She is joining us from Lewisville ISD.

Megan Landphair has decide to stay home with sweet Noah.

Lexi Nelson is going to Bledsoe as their IC

and of course Mrs. Sweatt is retiring.

3. Shout Out: of course Donna Hickman getting us through another year of STAAR testing!

Tyra Damm and all the Hosp staff that supported Tyra with Head For A Cure Race last weekend.

4. Listen To: the Tim Ferriss interview with Mike Rowe. If you don't tell your Dads/ husbands/ Brothers to do so. The stories he tells are remarkable (PG-13) and so entertaining. He is so much more than the Dirty Jobs guy and his stories from his days at QVC are hilarious. Funny tidbit QVC fired and rehired him 3 times in 3 years for making fun of the products he was selling. Oh and he can sing and dance and has performed on Broadway. All that and he serves as the Pitchman for Ford.

5. What I am reading: In our never ending attempt to find the perfect team leader book I am now reading, Drive, by Daniel PInk. It is all about motivation and what motivates us is not always a reward but rather the challenge. Interesting read so far!
