There’s a guy on YouTube, a school principal from somewhere, that posts some pretty hilarious videos about the lives of teachers.
Decades ago, I was a kindergarten teacher’s aide. I was in charge of three consecutive lunch sessions (30 minutes each) for kids from kindergarten through 4th grade every day (about 400 kids). The teachers would be relieved for 30 minutes while Mrs. Keller handled the ups and downs of lunch time. Kindergarten kids were very entertaining. Why mothers put thermos lids on so tightly is beyond me. I must have opened thousands!
That’s why this video about the most stressful part of the beginning of the school year (kindergarten lunchroom duty) hits home with me and is so true! Enjoy.
If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.
Each summer (spring, fall, and winter, too), I encourage you to READ. Not just CPA stuff! Read fiction and non-fiction for enjoyment and inspiration.
I am currently reading Jim Henson: The Biography by Brian Jay Jones. Henson had a knack, skill, aptitude, whatever you want to call it for finding and hiring the right people. He also said, “The beauty of nature has been one of the great inspirations in my life.”
So, do three things this weekend – read, take a walk, and…. Lighten-up this weekend and enjoy The Swedish Chef making a banana split.
Please watch out for each other and love and forgive everybody. It’s a good life, enjoy it.
I have been busy at conferences in June and I want to share some of my pictures. I will add them to my “Is that you with Rita” Flickr page but I don’t have them there yet. I made some composites to share. Maybe you will see yourself. The people I meet and have met over these many years are my greatest treasure.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
