What an exciting day! Today is the Back to School Bash at Dayton Elementary School! I hope that you are all as excited as we are here to get this new school year underway! This morning, we met as a full staff, not just Dayton, but all of TSC. We had the opportunity and the privilege to hear the Indiana Teacher of the Year, Kathy Nimmer speak to us all. What an amazing person, and what an amazing message she sent us off with!
Kathy said to us, that as we start the new school year, and we think about the Pledge of Allegiance that we make each morning to these United States of ours, why don’t we as teachers begin making a pledge of our own… a pledge to our students, to our profession, to ourselves. What an amazing idea to ponder on as we begin this year. I left inspired, reflecting on what I have done thus far to prepare for this year, and also contemplating what it is that I can do in the coming 9 months, 36 weeks, and 180 days to have the most positive impact on the students in our classroom and at THE Dayton Elementary School.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your children this year! They, each one of them, leaves a permanent mark in my life, and on my heart! Let’s have a wonderful year!
