Your Decision! Your Tomorrow!

"Today's decisions are tomorrow's realities"

-Tim Storey

So simple but true. Storey was featured on television this week and when he shared this quote, it made me think about the choices we make on a daily basis. How can we help our students think about their actions relating to this quote? I would encourage you all to have a discussion with students for a few minutes next week. Maybe you can share some decisions you've made in the past that have positively impacted your current being. Our students yearn from more than just someone teaching them a subject matter, they want someone to help them navigate through life!

Remember, It is all about human connection!

The late Rita Pierson's video "Every kid needs a champion" sums it up best. Although I have watched this video countless times, it always motivates me to keep pushing! I hope it does the same for you.

7. Last week, I attended T-Tess training which is the new appraisal system for teachers starting next school year. Have you read any information about this? We will of course provide professional development in August but get a head start! The expectations are different from PDAS and is all about the growth mindset for administrators and educators. This is being regarded as a change agent across the state for student and campus success as it relates to student learning.
