I am so thankful for this organization. The books my students received were invaluable to them, because they were stories about people who look like them. That have similar backgrounds and experiences as they do. They were Perfect!! I presented them to each of my students with a small gift to express my gratitude to them for sticking in there everyday when it seems there is no reason to persevere. And for displaying courage in the eyes of dismay. Words can’t express my gratitude! Happy Holidays and God Bless Us All! 🙏🏽
We were so excited to be chosen by The Leaders Readers Network to revive new books right before Christmas! I am a Kindergarten teacher at Sundown Lane Elementary and my kinder students were super excited to receive two brand new books to keep! This is an amazing organization and I’m so proud to be apart of its Network!
The doctors said Herpes virus do not have medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isn’t a special virus – your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body,But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the out break.

So excited to get these books packed and out to my students!!! Thank you to Give More HUGS and First Book for the opportunity to complete this project!!! Great summer reading!!!!
Safety first!
I am a math teacher. Of course I have problems. 😊
Today I would like to spotlight my current administrator, Mrs. Sharp. She was an incredible leader before this pandemic. Very compassionate, leads with grace and listens with heart. No one knew how to be a student,teacher,leader or parent during this time but she took the bull by the horns and kept us all together! Denise has led our campus with unwavering support! I am blessed to be a FCE Coyote!
Today I want to spotlight Norma Casillas from San Elizario ISD. Mrs. Casillas is my former admin and the teacher I am today is in large part due to her! I can still hear her yelling, "Good Morning Sunshine" as I walked into my room each day!!! Thank you Mrs. Casillas!! I love and miss you!!! #GMGthankATeacher,#WeAreInThisTogether,#TeachersRock
My favorite activity during "Me" time. Being Thelma on a road trip and discovering places I have never seen before. :-)
