I am sure there are lists of things teachers say to parents that make mom and dad’s eyes roll.
Certainly there are things we teachers say to kids that are unintentionally laughable.
There are also things teachers hear that make us laugh… so we won’t cry.
I’ve been thinking about asking the police to hang out on Harden Blvd. at student arrival times. Now I would never want one of our families in trouble for going too fast on Harden, but there seem to be a large number of speeding cars. And that makes it difficult to exit our property and make that right turn onto Harden Blvd.
I just watched a cool video showing someone removing rust from a car part using laser light. It was an amazing and instantaneous transformation.
In order to make light into a tool that can do intricate and powerful things, it needs to be incredibly focused. Laser light is an example.
This week in chapel, the students and I talked about individuals who are focused like a laser and how that has been a key to success. Gold-medal Olympian Tianna Bartoletta is a prime example. She would testify that a loss of focus after claiming a world championship in the long jump is 2006 led to a long dry spell for her. But a return to focus on her goal of being the best in her field has resulted in three Gold Medals and other accolades.
