Mrs. Smith has been MIA...

You may have noticed that I have been out most of the week. I left early Tuesday for a 3 day tour and conference in Minnesota and North Dakota. I had the privilege of visiting 3 elementary schools and 2 middle schools. I have been blown away - both at how at the end of the day we are all in this together and also how fortunate we are in Forsyth County. One school had 700 students, no counselor, no AP. Another middle school was all inner city kids who honestly scared me to death. The first school I visited did not have chairs- they allowed their students to sit, stand or do whatever and it was working!!! I can't wait to share some other amazing things I learned but the BIGGEST take-a-way was that I am proud of OUR work and of YOU!!!!!

We Are Connected..... on the playground too!

In light of what happened recently, it's a great time to really think about playground supervision. We all value our time outside as a little extra collaboration time but remember the purpose is to supervise for safety. This means strategic placement around the playground.

We Are Connected!!

We Are Connected helps us understand that everyone who comes into our lives can help us live our dreams. Through this mindset, we learn to constantly explore synergies with others, embrace diversity, and relish the competition that will allow us to maximize our potential with and through others.

-Embrace Everyone! E

-Maximize positive relationships!

–Build your Dream Team!I

-Lead with Value!
