A weekend of rest & the work ahead
It is amazing the paths a teacher can lead a student down. The staff here have so much power over such a wonderful group of youngsters! Given the staff we have here that is a great thing to be able to say. Students see welcome in you smiles. They see the desire to give knowledge. They see in you an adult who has more interaction throughout the day than their parents.
As we push our students to their ability (and past!) they follow us only because they trust us. They know that we love them by how we talk to them each and every day. And they get excited about their growth just as we do when we see success. Thank you for what you bring each day. I don't think you will ever know how much it matters. It does.

Bragging on our Teachers
Worksheets are neither good nor bad by themselves. It is how students use them. Students in Mrs. Flanter's class used their worksheets to critique each other's math problems. They reinforced the need to show their work leaving Mrs. Flanter grinning amidst the learning. Ask her to see examples of what the students took from this. This is distinguished learning where kids analyze and critique work that is done in addition to solving the problem.
Dr. Mark Turner
