Thank You, Joanne!

Every now and then something captures your attention…and you say, “Well, that makes sense…I should really do that.”  And then…often…you don’t get around to it….

 

Reading the blog for Zarate Fitness…see it under his blog at zaratefitness.com….an inspirational idea to recognize someone who helped influence, mold, enlighten your life! I love this idea, so I’m going to run with it!

lovely Joanne

This beautiful lady is Joanne Teague, my friend but also my inspiration. I taught with her when I first began teaching…so much fun. We were separated along the way with different buildings, grade levels, and responsibilities, but remained good friends. Then I was lucky enough to have her, as the principal, hire me to teach in her building.  It was amazing!! What an awesome experience…to work with someone so motivated to do what is best for kids. She is the one who got me involved with the accreditation process including data collection of all sorts, theme building, teamwork always, and working harder than I had ever worked before…and loving every bit of it. She never asked us to do anything that she wasn’t already doing more of…and always with a smile on her face. It was a dream job, and I learned so much more about myself as a person. I became stronger and more knowledgable in all areas, took on more responsibilities than I ever would have thought of, and loved learning about all things..both scholastic and not!!

Joanne and other inspirational folks I know

 

She was, and is, a beautiful person…who is a role model to all who know her. So in the spirit of this blog, I say:

Thank You, Joanne Teague, for all that you have done for me and for all those who know you!!

 

Happy Parenting,
