More Than A Number #SOL15
I found this thoughtful message in my inbox this morning from the world-renown, passionate writing guru, Barry Lane. Several years ago, when I worked in Crowley ISD, I had the privilege of driving Mr. Lane to the DFW airport so he could catch his plane home after a two day staff development in our district. He was animated, honest, and quirky, and I knew he loved kids. The fact he took the time to send a personalized message to the the public school children of Texas today makes me admire him even more. This heartfelt sentiment will help me make it through day one of the grueling STAAR writing test, Thank you for the gentle reminder that my students and I are more than a number.
