I learned some of my most valuable lessons in my first few years of teaching. I was blessed to begin my career in a building where three of the most amazing educators became my mentors and friends. They were there for me each time I felt like I failed my students, (which was often) and cheered me on when successes were celebrated. They were my biggest advocates and loudest cheerleaders. Never once did I feel like I was being judged for my failures or successes. It is not surprising that two became building administrators and the other the director of counseling services.

I am excited as I begin my journey into another school year. As Rita Pierson stated in her TED Talk "Is this job tough? You betcha! Oh God, you betcha. But it is not impossible. We can do this. We're educators. We're born to make a difference."
Celebrate Each Other
Be There for Each Other
Take Chances Together
Laugh Together and Enjoy the Moment
