B-I-I-G Congratulations Are in Order...

Our dear friend,
Dr. Sheila Kahrs, has been named the 2009-2010 MetLife/National Association of Secondary Schools Principals (NASSP) National Middle School Principal of the Year. This is a big deal. Think of the thousands of middle school principals against whom she had to compete. What a great honor! Congratulations, Sheila!

Here's what Sheila's School Superintendent, Dr. Ron Saunders, had to say: "I could not think of anyone more deserving for this national recognition that Dr. Sheila Kahrs. She is the perfect example of an administrator who cares for both students and faculty. Her expectations are always high and she expects the best of everyone. She is a strong professional who is not only competent but also caring. She will be an excellent representative of Haymon-Morris Middle School, Barrow County Schools, Georgia and the nation."

We couldn't agree more.

Annual Visitor...

Every year near the end of summer, a very large and beautiful spider appears on one of my shop windows. I wonder if it's the same spider every year or a replacement. Could it be an offspring? At any rate, it's very big and very beautiful, and I ain't about to touch it!

I Feel Old...

Today is my nephews' birthday. Mark and David turn 48 this evening between 10 and 11. OMG do I feel ancient. But by tomorrow, I'll forget and I'll feel fine again.
