March Slice of Life

March Slice of Life

My school was fortunate to have a local  eighteen year old Olympic athlete visit our school since he lives in our town.  He spoke to the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.  The kids were inspired by his dedication and his spirit to achieve the goal that he made for himself at the age of 9.  Each teacher received a signed poster for their classroom.  A kindergarten teacher was talking to the gym teacher about how she had shared the story about this athlete with her students.   They did not have the opportunity to meet him, yet they were inspired by his “doing the right thing.”  When observing students making wrong choices, being in control of their bodies, the teacher asks, “What would Tucker do?” as she points to the poster.  Immediately they  gain control and do the right thing.  She is so impressed by the impact this “stranger” has made on them.  Based on the results she is thinking she could use “Tucker” for at least another week before the novelty wears off.

    The novelty will wear off, many will forget…yet maybe another dream was born that will one day come true. Don’t you hope so?
