I Love Our Teachers and PTA

No matter what school you go to I have no doubt the principal is thinking, I have great teachers...and that may be true...but they are not as great as mine.

I am truly amazed by the love, respect, caring attitude, and belief our teachers have for our kids. They work so hard, every single day, and they do it smiling, always working hard, and always giving thier best.

I love our PTA. I came to them full steam ahead ready to try something new. Ready to change the library, and oh by the way...I needed help funding my goals and aspirations. They have supported me, and for that I am greatful.

So here is what I am thinking...great teachers + a great PTA = well...the sky's the limit isn't it?

What If I Told You...

What it I told you our kids can do anything? Would you believe me? What if anything wasn’t about passing the STAAR test? Although that is important…What if it wasn’t about having great MAP scores? Although again, that is important…

What if anything meant success? Can they be anything they want to be? Can they accomplish anything they set their mind to? Can they be the very best at something?

Here is the rub, you have two choices…Yes or No. There isn’t a maybe here. There isn’t room for I don’t know, maybe if parents were more involved, maybe if they had a better head-start program, maybe if I had more technology, more stuff, better toys… Because maybe = No.

Yes or No, if I told you our kids can do anything would you believe me? I choose Yes –

Next question: How do we do that? How do we help our kids do anything they want? It all starts with one word: Believe …it’s a small step…

Success will happen together, but you need to have faith and believe the answer to that first question is a resounding yes… From there, together, anything is possible.
