April means spring has sprung!

This is the time of year that testing is upon us, and kids are starting to get summer on their brains. It is up to us to calm them down and remind them there is still much work to do! So, as you are faced with one thing after another that is due, or needs to be done–just remember that each day you show up is a day that goes down in history where you dared to make a meaningful contribution to the world. Enjoy the words to this poem as your April ticks along…

Give yourself a pat on the back for making it all this way

And just in time to withstand the tricks on April Fool’s Day

But there are no tricks when it comes to the hard work you do

Like preparing your kids for testing and for the next grade level too

Still there’s much to be taken care of and work to be done

Field trips to go on, and oh yeah, there will be some fun

But no matter what April brings, you must never-ever forget that this is true

The most powerful difference-maker in the classroom is still…YOU!

Happy April Colleagues!

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!
