'YET'

As I was visiting I.W. Evans earlier in the week, I noticed this book hanging outside of Mrs. Benson's room!


It was a good reminder of Jake Thompson's story to frame situations with "I am not there YET".


While I doubt there will ever be a time in my life when I am able to say "I am all the way there", the feeling of progress - or the 'yet' - feels better than the seemingly final aspect of 'I am not there at all'.


So please cut yourself some slack and remember to 'yet'. Even better - teach your students about 'yet'.

CFO Introduction and CFO Appreciation Day - February 11th

It has been a busy week at Central Office. On Monday, we welcomed our new CFO into the Warrior Family.


Carly Snead will serve as Chief Financial Officer for Bonham ISD. She has 13 years experience in school finance - most recently as the Business Manager for Melissa ISD. Carly also has a lot of experience in the area of payroll - working at Community ISD and Northwest ISD in previous years.


On Friday, she met all campus and department secretaries and shared her vision for the future. Staff are excited to work with Carly and they are working to schedule their first official roundtable meeting. In addition to the meet-and-greet, she was showered with CFO appreciation gifts as Friday, February 11th was CFO Appreciation Day.


As a TCU graduate, she was excited to learn our school colors are purple and white and Carly can't wait to fully #BleedPurple as a Fighting Purple Warrior.

State of the District 2021 - Part 2

I put together a comprehensive State of the District for the 2021 year - from January to December 2021 - to share with the Board of Trustees, staff and the community. It showcases all the wonderful things the District IS and DOES!


The second section is 'Community Partnerships'. It contains examples of the many ways BISD contributes to and supports the larger community.

BISD Employee Makes Presentation at State Convention

Stephanie Avery (Instructional Technology and Software Support Specialist) presented at TCEA’s (Texas Computer Education Association) State Convention earlier this week.


Her presentation, "Potty Training - Not Just for Teachers Anymore”, used a concept of posting information and tips for teachers in the bathroom, aka Learning in the Loo. Her presentation included ideas for posting information for students as well. Information for students would be focused on subject-area concepts and standards that can be difficult for students to learn. Her presentation included how she posts, where she posts and where she gets her information.


She had a nice size audience and helped put ‘Bonham’ on the map as teachers from all over the state attend this annual convention.
