All is not lost…

I used this below during the recent NHS induction on our campus.  I just felt like blogging it.

I feel all is NOT lost on our campus.  I hope it’s the same for your workplace.

Character defines much of who we are, how we think, why we act, and what we say or do.  Character is what distinguishes one person from another. Those with good character demonstrate things such as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Our character is shown by what we do when no one else is around.  It gives us a sense of right and wrong.  It gives us understanding that right is right, even if others are against it, and that wrong is wrong, even if others are for it.

Good character is shown when we choose to do what is right.

AND–A person’s true character shows who he or she is through words and actions.

Character is the trait that is at the core of the other three traits that have been identified – it is the backbone of service, leadership, and scholarship.

Some say knowledge is power, but power truly lies in one’s character.

The power in an individual is contained within their character.

Billy Graham, one of the most well-known evangelists of our time said, “When character is lost, ALL is lost.”

I’m so proud to be a REBEL.

MY SATURDAY MORNING FB POST:

So proud of THE REBELS–all of them–not just one kid…not just one team…all of them. So honored and blessed to work at OCHS. If you look back, my posts, WIN OR LOSE, say good things about our students. I’m always a fan, always a REBEL. #RebelPride #SchoolSpirit #Forever

I’ve been a Rebel since about 1976 when I first stepped into Mrs. Lynn’s class.  She was so intimidating and scary.  She taught me though.  I learned.  I eventually realized even though she was very strict, she loved us.  That is what a teacher does.  They love.

Here I am many, many, many years later teaching at the same school I graduated from.  Through those years, I was a rebel in so many different ways, but always a loyal Rebel even when I taught at a different school with a much different mascot.

There have been several students come through my classroom here at OCHS.  They come in all different shapes, sizes, learning abilities, strengths, weaknesses, talents, attitudes, character, and so on.  Some, actually most, have insecurities I recall having when I was their age.  Others have strong opinions about events, other students and classes they take–and they don’t mind voicing them.  I remember being that exact same way as well.  ((I know yesterday’s post was a little negative about the strong talkers, but I know I was once right there–“wasting my time.”))

However they come, I love them.  I support them.  I hope to teach them more than what the class is called.   I hope to show them things about life that if not understood now, perhaps, one day they will remember.

Our football team is on a major winning streak right now.  If you know anything about Texas football, you know that is a big deal.  Win or lose, though…I’m proud of all of our students who are involved at our school –from the player to the fan, the athlete to the scholar.  They are all important.  Period.

…and no matter what…

I’m so proud to be a REBEL. 

MONUMENT TO HEROES

This man’s work is so full of heart.  I wish I had found this to post for Memorial Day.

“Guess what, we get to paint today.”
“I’m so fortunate… I get to do exactly what I want to do –all day long”

“Every time I do one of these, I do it as well as I possibly can.”

“It’s got to be just right.”

SOOOOOOO SWEET!
