Words of Wisdom

Keep love in your heart. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.
~ Oscar Wilde

With something to think about . . .We can all be a little flippant with the word love, especially kids. We just love chocolate. We love our new shoes. But in reality, nothing else is as critical to thriving in life as loving one another and being loved. The world can be a scary and unbalanced place. Particularly for children, love makes us feel safe and protected. Regardless of what is taught academically in your classroom, keep love in your heart and infuse caring into your teaching. When all is said and done, it's the lessons learned with love that have the most lasting impact.

Remember to take care of yourself.

Show yourself some love and treat yourself to an afternoon of doing exactly what YOU love to do.


Great news...your very own SMORE login is coming! We were able to purchase 40 smore teacher logins with Title 1 you can use as a parent communication tool. More info is coming!!!
