I’m so proud to be a REBEL.


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. 

What’s Important to You?

What is important to you?

Your car? Your house? TV? Phone? Computer? YouTube? Candy crush? Griping about whatever you can? A deer stand? A burger with fries? Ice cream?

I love this point…


What’s Important


GOD …believing in Him and not idols.  We have so many idols.  I strive to get closer to Him. 

Family…they are gifts that sometimes we abuse and we shouldn’t.  Ever. 

Friends …they are what keep us young and happy.  If your friends don’t make you happy, you need to find some different friends.

Health …physical and mental.  ((This one is so hard at times.))

Job …it’s so important to really love what you do.  If you don’t, CHANGE either your job or how you look at your job.  THE END.

Learning …keep doing this so your brain doesn’t become mush.

Hobbies …I like to keep busy.  Hobbies help keep your hands and minds busy doing good stuff.

FUN …this goes right along with all the things I just listed.  If you can’t have fun in life–YOU NEED TO CHANGE SOMETHING. 

SMILING …continuing from fun.  IF YOU CAN’T SMILE–you need to stay in bed.  haha !

LAUGHING! …it helps with EVERYTHING.

What is MOST important to YOU???
