Animal Tracks

When I was a child growing up in New York and Wisconsin, one of my favorite things to do was to look for footprints in the snow. As I walk around our beautiful KRCS campus, I am always on the lookout for footprints in the mud! I hope my scientists will learn to recognize some common footprints with this new matching game.

I tell visitors all the time that watching students develop their passions through high school is one of the greatest blessings for teachers at a PK through 12 school. One of my passions has always been dance. My daughter was a competitive dancer, and I danced in high school and college dance teams. I was even certified to teach Christian hip-hop two summers ago through Shazzy Fitness!

This year, I am assisting the coach of the Tigerettes, the King’s Ridge varsity dance team. What a great group of talented girls!

Mindfulness- Being Present

I saw this photo first on Facebook. It really struck me. Just look at how the woman in the middle is savoring the moment. She is present.

I think we miss so much.

I just purchased this children’s book, What Does it Mean to be Present? and I can’t wait to share it. It really speaks to this idea.

I have been cleaning out my basement and came across a box of photos from my first years as a teacher. I taught Head Start in Montgomery County, Maryland near Washington DC. It seems like a lifetime ago!

Far and away the best prize life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
