Celebrating This Week {6-06-15}

Thank you to Ruth Ayres for reminding us to take time for celebration.
This past week, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary.  It's hard to believe how quickly time has flown.  Babies, new houses, new jobs, vacations, holidays...So many memories that have become the building blocks of our time together.
This past Tuesday, Rick Wormeli was the speaker at our in-service.  Rick brought a message about grading, growth mindset, and student achievement that was music to my ears.  His words validated so much of what we are already doing at our school even though it is not mainstream culture yet.  It's just what I needed to hear.  Rick is the author of this book (among others), if you want a taste of his message:
What are you celebrating this week?

  4. Congratulations on your anniversary! 20 years is long enough to experience and witness many changes, yet short enough to know that many years together are still ahead.
