As we continue into our school year, our school theme of “Let Your Light Shine” is bright throughout the school community. We are growing our light in many ways. We are trying new methods of teaching…we are welcoming new students and teachers into our school with open arms…we are finding new friends…but most importantly, we are shining God’s light to everyone we see!
“Let Your Light Shine” shows that we are working together to make our school and community an open and inviting environment for all! We cannot be an environment that excludes. We are all God’s children and we need to treat each other as such. God’s light needs to shine brightly from within each of us. The darkness in this world can only be overcome by the light that we show.
I have 16 students in my homeroom and each student shines their light in a different way. There are artists, singers, dancers, athletes, readers, crafters, engineers, and so many other gifts that God has given to them. This has been an inspiration for me. These students, in the short time that I have had them, have reignited my passion for education. We have been in class for 1.5 quarters and I have seen such growth in these students. They have truly brought a new light into my educational career.
We have to continue to let our light shine. We cannot stop letting it shine because of challenges that we may encounter. We need to have our lights shine brighter during these difficult moments. We each face challenges throughout our lives, but we need to find ways to let our light shine through any crack in that challenge and find a motivation to move forward.
This year has already prepared me for a bright future. All I hope is that I am leading my students towards their bright future. Can’t wait to see how bright my students will shine at the end of this school year! Let your light shine, Blue Angels!
