Stickers – Fuzzy, Shimmers, Micros, Mylar, Prismatic, Scratch and Sniff - I love stickers!! All kinds – I love stickers!! Very few people know my passion and love for stickers. I have been a sticker collector for 22 years. I collect the brand Sandylion, mostly the slim designs. All of them are in plastic sleeves in a binder just like collectors of hockey cards.

I have recently let students use stickers in class to create a pattern border around a picture. Also, they have used stickers to represent a number – For Example, 5- The student will place five stickers on the page. I think the students see my love for stickers so they are excited when I bring out my sticker treasure chest for them to use in the classroom.

Confidence, Courage, Conviction, Character
Many times in life we will be faced with challenges or tough decisions. You need to rely on your confidence, courage, conviction and character to guide you in the right direction. As Ronald Reagan said, “A leader, once convinced a particular course of action is the right one, must have the determination to STICK with it and be undaunted when the going gets tough.” And surprisingly if we stick to it long enough, we can do it. If you reflect deeply on what the right decision is, then it is often the right decision. We often say ‘follow your gut’

Stay true to who you are and be proud of yourself.
Let’s teach our students to have Stick-to-itivenss especially when it is right!
