"Power: the ability to force or coerce someone to do your will, even if they would choose not to, because of your position or your might.

Authority: the skill of getting people to willingly do your will because of your personal influence."

-"The Servant" by Hunter

Every teacher is a leader.

"In the workplace, for example, employees will spend roughly half their waking hours working and living in the environment you create as the leader. I was amazed when I was in the working world at how nonchalantly and even flippantly people responded to that responsibility. There is a lot at stake and people are counting on you."

-'The Servant' by Hunter

"Everything in your classroom, whether good or bad, happens because you allow it.". -Lynne Jackson

"Being in power is like being a lady. If you have to remind people that you are, you aren't."
-Margaret Thatcher

Modeling reading actual books, not just my phone, for my 5 year old twins... So, I picked up "The Servant" by James C. Hunter.

It's been great so far and I'm hoping this can help my leadership with my students and peers. 👍👍

"The ideas I stand for are not my own. I borrowed them from Socrates, I swiped them from Chesterfield, I stole them from Jesus. And if you don't like their ideas, whose ideas would you rather use?"
-Dale Carnegie

I live in North Texas and we're predicted to have record setting low temperatures this weekend on into early next week. I'm feeling a bit concerned that I'm seeing more red breasted robins than I can ever remember seeing before. My theory is there staying ahead of the front and behind the front is too cold, even for them. 😳🥶😳🥶 Stay safe and WARM everyone.

Yeah.... I'm a geek, but that's ok. I love this series!

I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.
I will persist until I succeed."
