The award goes to…

SOLC: Day 1

Last night I attended a school fundraiser gala.  As part of the evening’s program several awards were presented to various staff members.  The “top” award of the evening was given to a woman who would rather not be the center of attention.  Before she was presented with the beautiful award, the Superintendent read aloud some quotes from other staff members describing the honoree.

As I listened to the warm and personal messages, these words stood out:

Encourager

Mentor

Role model

Friend

Source of inspiration

Humble

Dedicated to students and families

As I heard the messages, I couldn’t help but to wonder what people would say about me.  Have I been all of these things to students, colleagues, and families?  I believe I have.  I hope I have.
