I have the most thoughtful teammates and students ever!! In honor of my birthday today, they dressed up in blue and khaki, and it was awesome!! Thank you all so much for making today extra special!!
Thank you Michele Zugaro, Don Kemp, Krissy Baker, Paul Lidster, John Watkins, Eve Engelbrite, Lowell Johnson, Suzanne Black, Mary Jo Wilt, Ryan B., Tomas O., Grace H., and Stella Y.
This young man is an AP Calculus student, a talented musician, a Coppell Red Jacket … the list goes on. He is smart, talented, and always puts his best foot forward. I was particularly humbled when he came up to campus on an exam day (from which he was exempt), to take this photo with me. Trevor has so many options open to him when he leaves high school at the end of this year; I’m excited to learn which path he pursues, and I’m glad I got the opportunity to teach him as a student and to know him as a person.
This year, I’ve moved to a new hall with new neighbors. It’s been an adjustment, but all of the teachers have made the transition much easier. Dayna Bryant, AP Physics guru, is one of my new neighbors, and it is her blend of kindness and brilliance that inspires me daily. We sometimes arrive at school at the same time, so that gives us a chance to chat while we talk, and she is definitely one of the unsung heroes of CHS. She is knowledgeable and innovative, supportive and patient with her students, and helpful to me when I’ve needed it. All the while, she maintains a sense of peace and humility that is rarely seen. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know her this year, and I look forward to the rest of this year with such a fantastic neighbor and friend.
I am happy for any opportunity I get to say great things about Michael Brock. He is the IB Coordinator at Coppell High School, so I have had the pleasure of working side-by-side with him over the past several years. He is a brilliant teacher, a devoted husband and father to his family, and a true friend and confidant. He deserves much respect and honor, but is content just to serve his students and family every day. It is a true joy to know him and learn from him every day. Thank you, Michael Brock, for everything you do to impact my life and the lives of everyone who knows you.
