Things That Make Me Smile

When I first began teaching, my late father and CPS veteran gave me the best advice:  To be a success in the field of education you must,
1.  Have knowledge of your subject matter
2.  Patience
2.  A sense of humor

Well, the third is what I hang onto the most because it make my day go by faster and keeps me motivated.

Here are some things that make me smile everyday.  (please note:  some of the pictures are from Homecoming Spirit Week at Phillips)   Click on the picture to take a closer look.


1.  My students willingness to share fashion, fun with school events and to be themselves.

 2.    My students smile/happiness when they realize they can check out books that are on the displays in the Library Media Center.

 3.    My students love of reading....priceless!
