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”

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!”

Thinking outloud

I was speaking with my doctor after my cancer check. It is always great to talk to my medical team because I trust them, and we have built a great relationship. My results from my testing were great. I had no signs of anything active, so I remain in remission. I am so thankful andContinue reading “Thinking outloud”

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.”

Hope, Do you have it? Can you teach it?

As we all faced the pandemic, the ripple effect across the country continues with mixed messages on what to expect. Will we go back to “normal?” What is that anyway? Everyone has a different opinion. It is not clear moving forward what will happen in education, the business world, or travel. The vaccine is beingContinue reading “Hope, Do you have it? Can you teach it?”

Thought for the day

One of my former Superintendent’s arrived early to work, and I did too. I would send out a “Monday Morning Message” of inspiration. He would usually be one of the first to receive it. Sometimes he would call my office, email me or call me down to talk about items for the week and myContinue reading “Thought for the day”

Through the window

“The good things in life are better with you in it.” These are the words on the heart sitting on the ledge of the window next to my chair. I love to sit in my chair and watch the clouds, blue skies, birds flying, rain as it waters the grass, or snowflakes as they danceContinue reading “Through the window”

Message received

Every day, we receive messages from others in many different ways. We also send messages in various ways as well. Managing all of these communications can be overwhelming, but we can also mishandle messages. What we say, the body language we use, and the tones used to send messages to others. I know for myself,Continue reading “Message received”

SHARE it is a great way to begin!

Eric Jensen is one of my favorite authors in regard to the topic of addressing poverty. His approach made a great deal of sense to me. Brain based approach to the problem seemed to be the solution! It made sense to me and still does! There are many more layers to resolve and address, butContinue reading “SHARE it is a great way to begin!”
