That school year finish line is so close. Even if you are a year-round employee, things change pretty soon here when the final bell sends the kiddos away for the summer. It is so tempting to be glum when we're tired, yet what if we replaced "glum" with "grateful" this time? New first grade teacher Beth Ditto at BGE wrote an email to me that said, "It has been a busy week, but I am feeling blessed to call this my profession." Beth's intention to preserve the perpetually positive
amid the perpetually problematic seems a fitting aspiration for late May. I wish for you a day, week, and summer full of that kind of choosing over and over again.
