Liam: "I get to read and I'm going to be Mr. Turner."
Dean: "NO! It's my turn and I'm going to be Mrs. Sharma!"
Now, neither of these fine folk is Laim's or Dean's direct teachers. But kids all over the building see us and think..."Wow, that's a teacher." They listen to you more than you think and they love you more than you'll ever quite know. Even if you only wave to them in the hallway once.
You matter tremendously to 970 people at Level Creek (other staff included).

Life's 10 Essentials
It’s surprising how easy it is to lose sight of the important things in life. Busy schedules and weekly routines have a tendency to put the brain on autopilot. Some of life’s essential truths need repeating.
2. GREAT SUCCESS IS OFTEN PRECEDED BY FAILURE
You will never experience true success until you learn to embrace failure. Your mistakes pave the way for you to succeed by revealing when you’re on the wrong path. The biggest breakthroughs typically come when you’re feeling the most frustrated and the most stuck. It’s this frustration that forces you to think differently, to look outside the box and see the solution that you’ve been missing. Success takes patience and the ability to maintain a good attitude even while suffering for what you believe in.
