I have had a few "False Starts"....  The old blog Anything at Anytime - cant get in so....
bringing a New Fresher Version for all to see.  If you compare the New to the Old -- Very similar but different.  What will the future bring... who knows.... but I have found that is where the adventures begin.

Join me and Maybe we can find a Dragon or two (or three, or......)

A Well Deserved THANK YOU!!!

Jackie starts back at school tomorrow :(  without kids but still.... Summer is Over...
Kids all go back in next week....

I will do this a lot -- Until all of the Good Things I Wrote on Anything at Anytime are here.
They are What I have written and I want them all found in an many places as I can get them...
Because I Think they are Good and from the few comments I got there and then say the same thing.  You can Go to the old site and see the Original but Please don't comment there as I cant get into that site anymore and put the comments up... Comment here, I learned my lesson and Comments go straight up on the page when you post them....

This Post Particularly will be Posted EVERY Year just before School Starts so Teachers will know that Someone Appreciates what They DO for Us and Our Children - Our Children which ARE OUR FUTURE.... EVERYONE from Neil Armstrong to Presidents, General Laborers - aka Plumbers/Electricians/Painters/Mechanics etc..., ALL start in School.

So Please Comment and Leave Names of those you think fits what I wrote back then and still applies to today...

Enjoy and Think Back -- Remember One? or a Few?

Anything at Anytime says Thank You!

Today's post may be short, or it may be long just depends on how much I can think of to Thank Many Hard working individuals.

As today is the first day back to work for my wife today - without students (that is next Monday), I would like to Thank Teachers.

Please understand this is for those Teachers that take an active interest in their students and their job.  There are some out there that just take the job as a job and don't try and don't care for anything but the paycheck.  I have seen them on my own and witnessed them walking down school halls.  Believe me when I say this - Students and People in general can tell a Teacher from a teacher.

For the Teachers out there that Really care for their students and are proud of their profession, I THANK YOU!

Thank You for:

  1. watching our kids day in and day out.
  2. making sure our kids have a safe place to go if they feel things aren't right or safe.
  3. Educating our children with all of the restrictions placed on you by state and federal regulations.
  4. Showing up to work every single day even though you feel like "crap".
  5. Dealing with those kids that just don't want to be away from "mommy" or "daddy".
  6. Having to put up with runny noses and scrapped knees.
  7. Making sure our children understand that with an education there are better things out there for us all.
  8. Putting up with those of us that are a challenge at times.
  9. and along with #8 having the Patients of Job
  10. Those Teachers that take their own money to ensure that those one or two students that don't have,  Have mysteriously.  
  11. The Teachers that see a student not as a kid that they have to suffer with day in and day out but sees the child as a person that has human issues outside of school.
  12. finding whatever way it takes to get the student(s) too understand.  (even though I personally have always had issues with "to" and "too" :) )
  13. Standing up for and Noticing that it is not always One child's fault.
  14. Encouraging our children to try to do their best.
  15. helping our children realize they have more Potential than they think.
  16. finding that thing that makes each kid tick and helping them understand how what you are teaching applies to that - example: a kid likes rockets but is having difficulty in science, once the kid knows that science got the rocket going he/she pushes harder to learn more.
  17. opening the minds of our children.
  18. dealing with sore feet because of walking around the classroom all day.
  19. doing extra work at home in order to be prepared for the next day
  20. and Most Important of All:   Being a TEACHER that CARES.

If you see yourself in this List - Thanks from a father and a former student
If you don't see yourself on this list and want to be there find a Teacher at your school and ask them how you might be better.  Personally, my first suggestion would be to realize that you might learn something from your kids.  Education is a two way street.

If you are not a Teacher, but can think of a few send this to them or mention their names here.

Personally I have several:

My wife Jacqueline, Coach and American History Teacher Mike Graham,
Coach and Physics Brenda Railey, Coach and World History Tim Knowles,
English and GT Jacquita Lewter, Speech and Spanish Janet Hayes,
Coach and Phys Ed. Jimmy Arendt, Texas History and then Elementary Principle Charles Brown,
This list could go on and on because I was one of the Lucky ones that landed in a school district full of fabulous Teachers and got one Hell of an Education.
