One Word - I'm Getting There

Dear MS Family,

Can I be honest? I'm not doing very well with this balance thing - but what I'm realizing is that the reason why balancing may not be going as well as I'd like is because it's so important to me that our children and my children have the best educational experience possible.

I think back to when I was in High School, Far Rockaway HS. The school did not have a good reputation. Metal detectors were part of our daily entry routine, which set the tone before we even stepped into the classroom - but there was one teacher's class that I looked forward to. There was one teacher who made the subject that I never thought I was good at something I was proud of. I began to believe that I could when I was always told that I could not. I became a teacher because of Mr. Campo. With a few words of encouragement and feedback he helped me be better that day than I was the day before - he made a difference. He cared when it felt like no one else did.

You make a difference every day! Our actions and our words help a child believe in him/herself. The power that we posses is immeasurable. If "balancing" means that I may miss the opportunity to change the life of even one child - it's okay. I'll find other places where I can strike that balance - will you help me reach that one child who believes he/she cannot? Together we can make a difference!
