What's going on at RMS?

What an honor and privilege it was to honor our local veterans at our Veterans Day program last week. I appreciate all the help from the faculty for making this a success. A huge thanks goes out to Mrs. Rush for her hard work in planning, organizing, and directing this event!


The guest speaker for the Veterans Day program was LTC Mitch Spillers. LTC Spillers is a Russellville graduate and is retired from the United State Air Force. I personally do not know LTC Spilliers; however, what I did hear from him during his Veterans Day address was how important his teachers were when he when he attended school in the Russellville School System and how they contributed to his success.


When you really think about it, we have the opportunity to make a great impact on any student we serve each day. Right now you are educating our future doctors, nurses, firemen, police officers, teachers, electricians, mechanics, and military personnel. The impact you have is limitless and the potential is great. When teaching middle school students, it is easy to forget that one day these students will actually be adults with careers. Everything we do in the classroom helps prepare those students for their future success.


So today, I challenge you to look at the faces of your students in your classes and imagine them as adults. Ask yourself....if someone asked (any student) how I contributed as a teacher to their success, what would they say?
