Here is my WHY?

Forty years ago I began my journey teaching in Huntsville ISD.  Over the years, I have learned that the journey is as powerful now as it was in the beginning.  Small moments are what keep me going. Those times when you see understanding shining in a student’s eyes, when a child  independently picks up a book and runs over to say, “I can read this!”  or when you are given a hand painted flowerpot that says “Thank you for letting me grow!”  After forty years, I still believe in our students, teachers, and district.
