K.J., Santa, Kalina, Madeleine (grandniece)
If you have ever bought a lottery ticket or put a quarter in a slot machine or looked for a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks…it’s the same as believing in Santa. It’s all about wishful thinking. It’s a dream and a hope for something better. The anticipation of what will be under the tree or in your stocking is usually better than reality.
As teachers, we are the dream makers and believers! We give children dreams and believe in the power of making the world a better place one child at a time.
Langston Hughes was a lot like Santa when he wrote:
Hold onto dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is like a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Never give up...keep believing...keep on dreaming!
