A House of Rock Stars

I don’t know about you, but havingprep first thing in the morning just works for me. As organized as I am trying to be, I have always found myself frantically getting everything together as students come rushing into my classroom. Having prep as the first part of my day allows me to catch my breath, enjoy my coffee, and mentally prepare.


Prep also gives me a chance to walk the hallways and hear/see/learn the amazing craft of my colleagues.

I wanted to post this a long time ago, but what really hit me this morning as I walked the hallways of my high school is how lucky I am to be in a building that houses educational and professional rock stars! I work among some of the best of the best in education, in ALL departments, who constantly challenge themselves to become better teachers every year. Every teacher has their own style of teaching, and it’s awesome to be able to turn to each of these teachers for guidance and suggestions on a daily basis. We truly have a culture of talented rock stars in this building, and I couldn’t feel more lucky to work with them!

I salute them and am in awe of them on a daily basis. It’s an honor to work and learn from them all.
