I love this hand drawn card by artist Brandi Powell (perhaps a little more than I should). Just lovely!
It’s been a long time since I’ve read an article that made me want to jump up and down on my couch while pumping my fists in the air. Tonight I found an article that–if I weren’t snuggled under a blanket, freezing from the cold–would make me do just that.
The article, What Teachers Really Want to Tell Parents, by Ron Clark, begins:
(CNN) — This summer, I met a principal who was recently named as the administrator of the year in her state. She was loved and adored by all, but she told me she was leaving the profession.
I screamed, “You can’t leave us,” and she quite bluntly replied, “Look, if I get an offer to lead a school system of orphans, I will be all over it, but I just can’t deal with parents anymore; they are killing us.”
Read the article here. It is worth your time.
Jumping up and down in spirit–
