from the West Wing

I hope that you have enjoyed the blog posting over the last month as I shared with you some of the wisdom I have gleaned from Jim and Charles Fey from Love and Logic, particularly their views on technology and kids. I would even urge you to reread the articles all in one sitting. Today, however, I will return to writing my own material.

This is the time of year that I do formal observations in the classroom. For the past week I have spent some time in the classrooms observing each of our teachers as they presented a lesson to the class. While the teachers are somewhat stressed by this, I must say, this is one of my favorite times of the year. The reason I like it so much is not because I want to stress my teachers. Rather, it is because I thoroughly enjoy seeing our terrific staff doing what they do so well.

I must tell you that we are extremely blessed as a school. We have some of the best teachers anywhere to be found. What truly amazes me is the fact that each of our teachers is here at great personal sacrifice. Each of them could go most anywhere else and make more money. Instead, they have chosen to be here, working with, praying for, and giving themselves to you and your children. I could not be more proud to be part of this incredible team.

As always, I consider it a great privilege to serve the Kingdom in this place. Thank you for allowing each of us to be part of your family and thank you for being part of our Fairview family.

I think this verse sums up how we all feel here at Fairview. Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” As we serve you, we do so in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Again, thank you for the privilege to do so.
