With hope in my heart and passion in my soul I am reposting last year's MLK inspired missive. This year, more important than ever, may we recognize Dr. King's aspirations and belief in the future success stories for all America's children.
Tonight my heart is filled with joy. As we welcome the successes of the New Year, I have faith in the future of our public schools. This is the perfect time to celebrate!
Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, January 15th is here. This date marks my 46th year as a teacher. It doesn't get better than that. And here I am, still teaching, now in a preschool, hopefully making a difference.
I was born on Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. Perhaps that is why I have always had such a strong social conscience. I've been teaching reading nearly my whole life. When I was six, I was dragging neighborhood kids into my 'schoolroom'. Being a Principal was logical and a highlight of my career.
