As I sit and ponder the last 25+ years, I am amazed at how much I realize that I’ve learned more from each and every child I’ve come to know rather than how much I’ve taught them to grow. My experience ranges from the Great Lakes of Western New York (Go! Go! Buffalo!) to the corn fields of the Mid-West to the rolling hills of the Piedmont. I’ve cried and laughed with parents of 5-year olds as well as 18-year olds.
I am the wife of a retired United States Air Force Veteran. We have a beautiful 16-year old daughter who has chlorine for blood. I spend all my free time following her around the state from pool to pool, be it for competitive league, summer league or high school season. Thank goodness for portable technology!
My promise to you is that, even though my expectations are extremely high, your child will reach beyond them, because if they don’t, they are only disrespecting themselves. So, remember this:
“You are unique, and if that is not fulfilled, then something has been lost.”
― Martha Graham
Thank you for opening your arms to me at Mount Pleasant Middle this new school year as I become a Tiger. There will never be a question too big, too small, or too silly since we are experiencing this “newness” together. I am excited to get to know you and your child as we take on this beast of year!
