The Gift

During teacher appreciate week, I felt like it was appropriate to share the above quote and movie clip. Working in a school is by no means glamorous and is definitely not a route to getting rich. It is however, the most rewarding position you will ever have. Every person in our building has the distinct gift of working with students and the opportunity to impact their lives.

This week I have spent several hours reviewing applications, resumes and talking to potential candidates for open positions at our school and district. There are hundreds of people who would love to the gift that you receive each day. We are so fortunate to have that opportunity and our kids are so blessed that you take that gift and cherish it.

Thank you for loving our kids.
