The Royals are in the World Series for the second time in a row! We all watch and yell and cringe through every pitch, every up to bat. It is both stressful and exciting and, in cases of long extra innings, can be exhausting. Despite the tension, we still tune in with hope and promise that a championship is within reaching distance.
A year of teaching, is like a long World Series championship. We pour our hearts into being the best for our students. We may error from time to time, but there is usually a colleague close by to back us up. Technical glitches might throw off our stride and the weather can even influence some of our best lessons. If we just keep our head in the game, we will end up alright.
However, as time goes by, the game may feel like it is shifting in a new direction and it can be difficult for some to adjust. If we get stuck in old habits, (the way things have always been done), we might miss out on ways to increase our speed or learn a new way to be productive. No matter what, if we are open to learning a few new plays, our odds of winning will dramatically increase.
We in Kearney are fortunate to be stacked with some pretty amazing players. The teachers and support staff rise to the occasion at every play. If we continue our tradition of excellence and strive to be innovative with our team, we will continue to create champions around us for years to come.
