What labels could you use to describe your working world? Is it a world of Sales Quotas and Power Lunches? Maybe you spend your days in a Man Against the Elements environment, facing the biting cold or scorching heat. My world is a place where adhesive bandages and a working pencil sharpener are essential to survival. Rather than a Power Lunch, teachers take a Gulp it Down in a Hurry Lunch. But if I had to give my work place it a label, I would choose the one on my classroom door, and hope that it lives up to the title.

Creating Something Beautiful All Our Own.
Transforming more into What We Are Meant to Be.
That transformation is almost complete. Just three more weeks left in the Learning Zone for the 2011-12 year. And the good news is I believe I have just enough adhesive bandages left to hold us together until May 24th!
