"Great leaders don't set out to be a leader they set out to make a difference. Its never about the role, its about the GOAL. "

LIFE IS 10 PERCENT OF WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND 90 PERCENT OF HOW YOUR REACT TO IT. With the turn of the season comes NEW Challenges and old problems become heighten. You will have issues with students, coworkers, curriculum, at this school, another school, a day from now , a month from now....etc. ISSUES are apart of life, but your attitude towards them is so important. Are u going to let it effect you? NO! I have been in awe of how strong some of our Bluford STEM Staff Members are ( tougher than a $2 steak). KEEP BEING THE LIGHT! #PHENOMENALSTEMEDUCATORS

SHOUTOUT TO Miss. Copeland! It is No Secret that Miss. Copeland has one of the biggest classrooms in our school. But Miss. Copeland came up with an innovative idea with the use of Class Dojo. Miss.

Shout OUT to Miss. Bass and Miss. Ferguson! Miss. Bass and Miss. Ferguson tried a new and innovated tool called Chalk talk. Chalk talk a silent activity, where no one may talk at all.
