Even a strict teacher like myself gets a thank you, once in a while. This short week before spring break, has shown me a great deal about myself and my students. #teaching #thankful yet still #humble

I guide my students to develop their creative genius - to be imaginative. In using their imaginations, they will be the best problem-solvers/innovators. This test-taking does not truly reflect the individual child. It’s just a stressed out snapshot of a 3-4 long days of testing. #parcc #sbac

When managing my classroom team, I think of my uber creative, authentic team I was part of with #DisneyEnglish. When ever the opportunity comes across again, I will go back “home.”  

Considered the definitive report card on corporate reputations, Fortune magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies rankings recently named The Walt Disney Company No. 7 out of the top 50 global firms, up from No. 9 in 2013, and No. 1 once again in the Entertainment category. “The famed storytellers at Walt Disney had a breakout year in 2013,” the magazine reports, specifically calling out Walt Disney Animation Studio’s latest animated feature Frozen.

In other categories, Disney ranked No. 1 in social responsibility, use of corporate assets and global competitiveness; No. 2 in people management and No. 8 in long-term investment. Fortune’s rankings are published each year and reflect the observations and opinions of executives, directors and analysts from a total of 692 companies in 30 countries.

On this International Women’s Day, I celebrate mothers. My mom worked hard in her life to provide for us all. I remember her sending me off with a heartfelt “I love you” and coming home to a cheerful “There’s my son.”  Although not a phone person, she would call her (birth and adopted) mothers just to tell them she loved them. A little phrase can mean so much and that’s why I thank my mother for dealing with me throughout my life.  
So I make a tradition of celebrating my mother with one of her favorite songs by Stevie Wonder “I Just Called To Say I Love You”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwOU3bnuU0k&sns=em
