March is marching on…

Although March is just about over, I still want to take a moment and encourage you to keep on marching. Each day comes with its own challenges and we work diligently to find ways to make it through. Sometimes a special moment with a student can make your day like nothing else can. I remember a day earlier in the year when everything seemed to be going downhill. You know the days…when the phone rings two too many times during instruction, a student continues to have disruptive behavior, a persistent parent dominates your conference time with an impromptu meeting, and you are already pressed by impending deadlines and assessments. Even with all of that going on, I had a student slip me a note with her personal artwork. It had flowers and hearts on it, and on the bottom it simply said, “Thank you Mrs. Bowers, for making me feel special.” When I read it, it made me smile and I was reminded of what I love about being a teacher. The kids have no idea about all the things you go through as a teacher, so if you can make a child feel special in the midst of everything else, then you have made a difference in their lives. Colleagues, no matter what each day brings…keep marching on! Here’s a poem for you!

Spring is on the rise and is almost here

So much to look forward to this time of year

Spring Break is on the way to give us some time

To catch up on rest, relaxation or other things that may be behind

Then there’s the Open House event coming up too

To visit with parents and show them a little about what we do

Soon the last quarter begins but still so much ahead

Each day will bring challenges, but hang in there and try to stay positive instead

Just remember, keep laser-focused on the important work you do

You were chosen for this time in history to help make kids’ dreams come true!

Love,

Mrs. Bowers

I am a wife, mother of three, poet, author, teacher, and speaker. The first ministry God has given me started at home with my husband of 27 years. We have grown up together and become dear friends over the years. The Lord added three kids to the ministry, Elijah, Nehemiah and Amaziah. They have blessed us beyond measure in so many ways. We pray that we will be examples of the kingdom who they will want to always follow. In addition to family ministry, for the last 20 years I have taught Language Arts in private, public and home school settings. Throughout my years of teaching, God has given me a sincere heart for teachers. Therefore, I am on a divine mission to help the world appreciate and support teachers. It is an honor for me to encourage teachers by using the knowledge, skills, love of poetry, experience as a teacher that the Lord has given and match it with wisdom from the master teacher, Jesus Christ. I had the privilege to express some of this wisdom in my book entitled, “The Unforgettable Teacher’s Journey.” In this book I write about the truth of the miraculous ministry of Jesus to encourage and inspire teachers in their journey. Each chapter paints a beautiful picture of how the journey of a teacher is remarkably similar to the ministry of Jesus. Teachers will be inspired by the eloquently crafted biblical truths as well as the peaceful poetry that is strategically positioned throughout this book. I pray that all that I do, whether in family or public ministry, be a blessing to those who hear it!
