The WHY...

Mrs. Roger's Why:

I have always been a "school girl," loved everything about going to school my whole life. They say "those who can, do/ those who can't, teach." It is a terrible saying except when I stretch it to say that since I can't be a student forever, I can surround myself with students and teachers and can learn as much from them as I teach. I want to be a lifelong learner, so maybe my reasons are a bit more selfish. But if I can inspire students to be lifelong learners, too, then I have made a difference.

Emily Pryor's Why:

To make a positive difference in the lives of the children that I serve as well as the teachers, staff, and community that surround our school.

Coach Stacy's Why:

To be the "constant" in each students life. To be the one they want to share with and trust . They know they can Count on me!

Amanda Maclaurin's WHY:

To make a positive difference in children’s lives. ❤️

Sonya Moreno's WHY:

To encourage all students & celebrate every success/improvement, no matter the size!

I would love for you to share your WHY so that we can highlight them throughout the year!

Celebrations AND SHOUT-OUTS!

I want to do a shout out to my team for being SO helpful! I’m so thankful for them. I cried yesterday because I felt like I could not get my kids’ attention and I just struggled with discipline. My team stayed after school and talked through everything with me. Role played, gave me pointers on what has worked for them in the past, checked on me later in the evening... checked on me again today to how things went. I love them!! They are priceless!!
