Be Awesome!



One of those words that bothers me because of its overuse, like teenage girls saying I Love You to anyone and tragedy not requiring a premise of heroism, is AWESOME!  When everything is awesome your expectations are to low or you’re too easily impressed.  I try not to subscribe to either of those.

After much deliberation this summer concerning standardized test scores I determined that there was only one way that I could expect teachers to squeeze those few more points out of our students.  Cautiously, “Be Awesome,”  I told them.  “That’s all I can ask.”  

If you are giving it everything you have every day, there is no more.  I do believe you can work smarter instead of harder and I believe that you can focus your energies in certain areas but those things are part of being awesome.

You can’t possibly give it more than everything you have!
