4 Days

This week we have another 4 day week!  I so hope you enjoyed your extended Easter Weekend and that you had another opportunity to rest up and rejuvenate.

These last two months of school can be a lot of pressure and unneeded angst for our kiddos.  So let's make sure that we leave our own stuff in the car and show up every day ready to be there 100% for our kids.  That we surround them with second chances, conversations, and compassion.

Team Planning

Rockstar Educators

Eric Ceballos - Eric is a 4th Grade Math/Sci teacher here at Webb.  He is a forced to be reckoned with.  I have been impressed with Eric in the classroom almost from day one.  This is his first year in a classroom all his own and he has taken it by the horns for sure.  He is creative and energetic.  He also has really great classroom management.  I love all the ideas that Eric brings to the table and I love that he isn't afraid to try something new or learn something new.  Eric is such a great asset to our team!

Loriann Whitman - Loriann is a 5th grade ELAR teacher here at Webb.  Loriann is also a first year teacher and she has done exceptionally well.  Loriann isn't afraid to ask for advice/help and really tries to push herself.  She is also incredibly compassionate towards her students and is really good about bringing her own passions into lessons.  Loriann is also incredibly committed to continually getting things just right and is often found working on school stuff, far outside of school hours!  I am so thankful to have Loriann working on our team!

As we enter this shortened week, let's remember that sometimes we just need to bring something different, light-hearted, and fun into our environment to change the moods or perceptions.  Just like the video below.

SoulPancake and Purina Dog Chow teamed up to share the #PowerofPuppies at a preschool, retirement home, and gym to transform an otherwise ordinary day. Share with someone that needs the power of puppies in their lives! For every video view, Puppy Chow will donate one pound of Puppy Chow Natural to Rescue Bank (up to 500,000 pounds or until April 23, 2016).
