For all of our beginning teachers, I pray that. . .
you will respect, honor, accept, and love each student that comes your way. They are depending on you to be a secure, steady, and loving rock in their lives.
you will receive the gifts of patience, understanding, and perseverence. Be kind. Be positive. Be fun and funny. You are a role model for our young people.
you will pass on the gift and legacy of being lifelong learners, readers, and writers so that our students may pass on the same to their children.
Blessings on you as you begin a new year. May you be energized and inspired. Thank you for becoming a teacher!
