The Blarney Stone is set high upon the Blarney Castle on the top story in Cork, Ireland. It is said to give the kisser the power of eloquence or the "gift of gab." Kiss it, legend says, and you'll never be a loser for words! BUT, the stone must be kissed in a certain way for its powers to be effective.

HERE'S THE GANG!
Nothing I have ever done has brought me as much joy as I have received from teaching children how to read and write. Helping young children grow and mature has been richly rewarding and I would not trade my experiences for anything. It's hard for many people to understand all of the work that goes into being a classroom teacher, the word “teacher” just doesn’t cover it. We’re also nurses, psychologists, recess monitors, social workers, parental counselors, secretaries, copy machine mechanics, and almost literally parents, in most instances, to our students. When you’re a teacher, you have to be ready for everything and anything to be thrown at you on a given day. And there’s no turning it down.
If you take a look at what has happened in our nation's public schools since the beginning of
No Child Left Behind, e
verything that is not math or reading has been de-emphasized. The teaching of history and science has shrunk to almost nothing in most schools, or are made to be taught only for the tested areas. Elementary children have limited recess time so more time can be squeezed in for math and reading.
And of course to go along with all of this, the move toward merit pay continues. Merit pay and eliminating teacher tenure, while turning teachers into at-will employees are the biggest disservice our leaders can do to students. Over the past few years, wonderfully gifted young teachers have left the classroom, feeling they do not have support and that things are not going to get any better. These were most of my reasons for leaving the classroom. I was sad to leave and wondered if I would ever change my mind, but looking back, I think it was the best move for me.
Three Simple Rules in Life
1. If you never go after what you want,
you'll never have it.
2. If you do not ask,
the answer will always be no.
3. If you do not step forward,
you will always be in the same place
No matter how old you are, where you’re from or what you do for a living, we all share something in common, a desire to be successful. Each person’s definition of success is different. I fell that if I am willing to
think big, find what I love to do and do it, learn how to balance my life, avoid being afraid of failure, be a person of action, introduce new ideas, keep a positive mental attitude, and be willing to work hard
, I will continue to succeed in the direction I'm meant to go.
