Thursday, March 15th

I had a wonderful birthday!  Thank you so much for all the flowers, cards and kind sentiments.  You all are the best.  I received an email that had the following words of advice for being the best person you can.  Read through them, they are great ideas. 

Be humble. Understand you are a (small) part of the world. Service and patience should be your top priorities.
Be teachable. Focus on what you can learn, rather than what you know. Remember that almost everything you learn comes from the work of someone else.
Listen more. Make every effort to truly understand what others are saying (beyond just words). Allow a gap of silence before responding. Ask questions (and listen, again).
Appreciate people. Enjoy others' contributions. Don't squelch ideas or defend territory. Encourage more.
Relax. Let go of the need to be right or win every time.

We will have visitors in the building this morning. Dr. Fonseca, Asst. Superintendent of Instructional Services and David Sisk will be here between 9 and 11. I know we will put our best foot forward as usual.  He will be visiting classrooms.  I will be at a Principal's PLC and Elementary Principal's Meeting so email me if you need me. Have a wonderful day!!!
