My Challenge to You

Jack Uldrich: The Future Requires Unlearning

So, what colors did you say? How about the cause of ulcers? Do you have some unlearning to do? I do.


So what did you think about Jack's statement of, "We learned things early in our eduction, early in our career but the world passes us by and changes,"? Kinds of hits hard, huh? For me it really shows the need to be a lifelong learner and continue to learn and be willing to change. How about you? What do you think?


How about the medical community? What did you think and feel when Jack said that it takes 17 years for a best practice to work its way through the system and become adopted as conventional wisdom? Makes me think twice. It makes me hope that my doctors and all of my loved one's doctors are on the leading edge of that 17 years and not on the trailing edge. How about you?


What do you think parents think about their child's teachers? Would they rather their child's teacher be on the leading edge or the trailing edge? Where would you want your child's teacher to be?


Where do you fall, leading or trailing?


Think. Achieve. Succeed.

Academic Tip of the Week

Do you have a student that needs to improve his/her performance on homework assignments?


Try This:


Arrange a time for the student to study with a peer tutor before completing a graded assignment. NJHS students are looking for Community Service hours and peer tutoring qualifies for their community service. Tap into that peer tutorial resource. Talk with Miss Rimlinger or Miss Booker if you need the names of students.

Wellness Tip of the Week

It's October!!! Have you had your flu shot?


Remember Walgreens,HEB, CVS, and your doctor's offices have the shot available now. I just got word that Scott and White is offering a flu clinic starting 10/4/16 (and continue all month long). They will give the flu shot every Tuesday and Thursday 9am-7pm and on Wednesday 9am -5pm. They are offering one Saturday clinic on October 15th 9am-1pm. This clinic will be at the University location. If you want more info on the flu shot and flu season see this website
