TSC State of Mind
with Megan Ulrich
Happy spring to you all as the weather is getting warmer and the sun is shining a little more. May not only brings changes in our weather, but May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. This year in particular it’s so important to stop and assess our own mental health just as we would our physical health. Please reach out for support if you are concerned. You can start with your family doctor or check out TSC’s EAP Program. The Lafayette Community is wearing green to show solidarity for Mental Health Awareness Friday, May 7 and the courthouse will be illuminated in green.

with Kathy Nimmer

Perhaps you have had the experience of seeing remarkable change in the
world around you only when you allow yourself to slow down and consciously notice. New fifth grade Wyandotte teacher Hailey Howe shared with me that standardized testing has given her a chance to recognize the changes in her students from the beginning of the year. In their stillness as they worked, Hailey took time to contemplate each student, and she wrote, "Because I see them every day, it is harder for me to notice the physical changes in their faces, but I now can see the academic and emotional growth they have made." May we each
seek such stillness and use it to recognize the changes that time, growth, and seasons give us constantly, if we only take the time to notice.
