F is for family

The school year has ended in many schools, but my daughter has a few more days left with her students. Each year she has a theme and spends a great deal of time investing in designing meaningful lessons that reach beyond her classroom. Today was one of her letter days. Each letter represents a particularContinue reading “F is for family”

Do you have a Scary Words Box?

As a teacher, I had a word wall. It was always fun to add words to our wall. We enjoyed adding the words and randomly selecting a word to use for the day. Entering into the administrative world, I did not want to leave the teaching fun behind. I added a word of the weekContinue reading “Do you have a Scary Words Box?”

Why? This is a question I ask daily

I keep myself sheltered as much as possible from daily negativity. It is never good for anyone’s health to keep negative influences in your life daily. However, it would help if you kept yourself informed of current events to support others and yourself. Statistics of the number of violent incidents, shootings, and crimes are onContinue reading “Why? This is a question I ask daily”

Life is short….but the week seems long

As the sun rises and shines brightly to wake us to a new day or as we reach to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock, it is Monday! A workweek begins as the weekend is behind us now! Where does the time go? Just like that, Friday turns to Monday. We get 168Continue reading “Life is short….but the week seems long”

Saturday SMILE

“Each day is a gift we unwrap. As you open your eyes to greet the day, find a way to set your mind to make it the best in every way. No matter the forecast outside, our hearts will bring a smile from inside to outside to brighten the day. If not you, then who will start to make this positive change today!”

It’s Time for the Truth!

It is time for the truth! To achieve, find joy, and conquer your dreams, is up to…..you! The power has always been with you! We can chase all of the shiny things, try all of the new features out there and surround ourselves with the very best of everything, but it comes down to you.Continue reading “It’s Time for the Truth!”

Checking in and Checking Out

“Good morning; it is great to see you, Trevor! Love your outfit today, Tiffany! Jozie, I saw you and your aunt this morning.” Greeting individuals in the morning will help to start the day off right. You can easily see if they are doing okay by taking a quick check by welcoming them. Weekends canContinue reading “Checking in and Checking Out”

Note to self….

A handwritten letter appeared on my desk for the mail delivery. It was my Amanda from several years ago. I will call her to take her to lunch. “Mrs. Yoho I saved all of our journals, they saved my life.”

The road you travel

“Being brave is when you are afraid of doing something, but you do it anyway. Do not let what scares you keep you from continuing on your path….” -What the Road Said. It is our fears of the unknown that can hold us back, or we are afraid of failing. When we do not believe in ourselves and our abilities, it prevents us from trusting the road we travel.
