Accept + Adapt +Depend=Success by Jacki Sellmansberger

I am at the start of a new crossroads in my life. I have never been at this exact place before! I have changed jobs, locations, relationships, etc. but never my career! It is an exciting, bittersweet time! There have been some fears and tears, and will probably be more amidst the joys as we say goodbye next week. Each of you holds a special place in my heart! Many have said to me, “Oh, I wish I were in your shoes!” And yes, this is definitely a choice that I made. There was no pressure from anyone or anywhere to retire. It just seemed like a good time to cut back somewhat on the hours I have put in the past 30+ years! My family needs me, and I need to be more a part of their lives. I am excited and happy!

So here’s the lesson I am learning at this new juncture in my life…First of all, ACCEPT WHERE THIS CHOICE IS LEADING ME! I have plans, but I am holding them all very loosely, as I wait to see what God’s plans are for me. Secondly, ADAPT TO WHATEVER SITUATION I MAY FIND MYSELF IN, AS A RESULT OF MY CHOICES! And thirdly, DEPEND ON GOD TO DIRECT MY HEART AND MIND AS THE FUTURE UNFOLDS! Most of you have known me long enough to know my faith is the most important thing in my life! Most of you probably do not know my story of much pain and some failures that God’s Grace has rescued me from. I am truly a blessed woman who proves God does give second chances and renewed life! Regardless of where God leads any of us in this next step of our life journey, I am quite certain we will find SUCCESS IF WE FOLLOW THESE STEPS! I wish you much JOY!

Continue to keep Jocelyn Garrison in your thoughts and prayers, as well as Cary Pedraza (custodian). Let’s also remember our “children” as they venture out into the summer! Remember for many of them, coming to school each day is the “best” thing that happens to them all day! They receive food, learning, love and care that they may not receive anywhere else!

Thank you .... Continue To Be a Blessing

I want to thank each person for their commitment to the students at Nesbit Elementary. As we begin to finalize the school year I reflected on all of the different events, losses, and blessings we have had this school year. I am blessed to be a part of a wonderful school .....Nesbit Elementary. We always tell our students to have that Mustang PRIDE. Are we proud of our accomplishments this year? I am happy about everything we have done. What I know for sure is that Nesbit is filled with great people who want to help kids realize their full potential. We are going to continue our journey towards excellence. Thank you again for all that you do and continue to be a blessing to others.
