I have tried Twitter several times in the past few years but have either become bored or just simply thought it was too much trouble. Oh, how wrong I was! Twitter is a fascinating place. Continue reading “Am I a Twit, Since I Twitter?”
I have entered that season of life that some women yearn for while others loathe it. I am one of the yearners, although, not all of it is a walk-in-the-park. There are several symptoms that I could definitely live without. Weight gain, hair loss, brittle finger and toenails, horrible sleep patterns, and memory loss are a few that have plagued my past few years. I have started looking for ways to combat some of these problems. Continue reading “I Am a Mess, HELP! Journey To a Healthier and Happier Me”

I have been out of touch for a while because of school starting. I, along with the best staff around, was hard at work getting things ready for professional development days and the first days of school. We decided on a Hollywood theme this year and tied our PBIS to it as much as possible. Having so much to do, I am glad that my school district runs a four-day weekly schedule.
Yes, that is correct, Continue reading “Four-Day School Week”
I work with kids in three different capacities. First, I am a mom/nana which is my best job. Second, I am the principal of an elementary school and love every minute of it. Last, I am a youth sponsor at our church. I have so many opportunities to build relationships with the kids in my life.
Being a mom is by far Continue reading “Build Relationships Every Day!”
I am passionate about student leadership. I have two kids of my own that are still in school and I want them to be leaders. We are Christians first in my home. My kids need to show leadership in that area first, not be a follower of the crowd. They are being taught what is right and what is not. What to pursue and what to avoid. I want them to stand up for their personal convictions and make smart choices. Are we perfect, not even close! Continue reading “Leading Students to Leadership”
Canva is an awesome and easy to use tool for creating quick graphic designs. Use Canva to create header images for Facebook, blogs, and other social media sites or use it to create posters, fliers Pinterest graphics and so much more.

We waited a bit too long to book our vacation so we ended up heading to Branson.
We love Branson and since it is only a couple of hours from our home, it is a perfect little getaway. We are owners at the Branson’s Nantucket private residence club. This will be an absolutely phenomenal place when it is completed next year. It is already a great place to stay. It is out of the high volume traffic area, but close enough that you are not inconvenienced with a long drive to the 76 strip.
If you would like to try Branson’s Nantucket, contact us with the form below.
Are you waiting on God to do something in your life, or is God waiting on you? Having faith and trusting God is important. God, however, doesn’t want us to sit idle and expect Him to do everything. He guides us through the Holy Spirit to do His will. John 14:26 We receive the Holy Spirit when we accept Christ as our Savior. Romans 8:14 Continue reading “Are You Waiting on God, Or Is God Waiting on You?”
I have been reading an excellent book called Lead Like a Pirate by Shelley Burgess and Beth Houf. Although, I am only about half-way through, I have written in it, sticky tabbed it and have gotten so many sparks to take back to my own building. This is a must read for any leader.
