January 2013 Words from the Prez

Post date: Jan 10, 2013 3:52:38 PM

What a New Year! There have been a plethora of bowl games, and people making resolutions that could improve their lives. I saw a commercial on TV over the break that was sponsored by a cereal that is supposed to help lose weight. In the commercial people were in Times Square and they were ask to stand on a scale. This ended up not being a normal scale but a scale that showed what you had to “gain” by keeping their resolution of losing weight. When the participants stepped on the scale, instead of seeing their weight, they were given a word, such as confidence, joy, fortitude, etc. That gave them encouragement to pursue their resolution. When I step on the scale, I would like to see the word PRIDE displayed. Pride in my student’s work, pride in my work, pride in our education association and pride in the life that I lead. If you stepped on the scale what word would you want to see displayed?

I hope that you have a wonderful New Year and see wonderful results to any resolutions that you have made.
