Friday Focus “Prove Them Wrong”
Has anyone told you that cannot do it? Have you been discouraged by someone or something? Do you believe them? The narrative around schools has been challenging. Remember OUR KIDS can do anything…YOU can do anything. Together, we can do ANYTHING! We wake up every day and work with young people who have the ability to do anything, be anyone. We have the special opportunity to work in a school with talented adults who never let us down. You change lives!
Teaching at Martin is a blessing. I don’t need anyone to tell me that…..I LOVE being here! It is a privilege to teach and work alongside you. We hear people say we have an impossible job. I love when people say, we can’t do it. Why can’t Martin become the best middle school in the state? People say that OUR KIDS have changed and teaching isn’t the same as it used to be. However, we know that low expectations are dead wrong. Listen, we can do anything. Flat out anything. Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something. Don’t let anyone make assumptions about OUR KIDS.
Keep working hard and show everyone who has ever doubted you, everyone who has ever told you that you cannot do something and anyone who didn’t believe in you how GREAT YOU ARE! Let’s PROVE THEM WRONG! You have the courage to be here at Martin Middle School everyday ready to teach, love, and care. This 7 minute video reminds us TOGETHER we can do anything for OUR KIDS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPQ1budJRIQ
