As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

HOSA State Competition Open MIc.

Hey everyone just wanted to brag a little on my kids. We attended the HOSA State competition last weekend. I took 14 students and they behaved so well. I was very proud of them. I had 6 students make it to the second round of the competition and three students become finalist. We were so excited. We had 4th and 5th place for Medical Assistant and 4th for Dental Spelling. I can't wait for next year. I hope that this time next year I can say that we have some 1st and 2nd place winners. I hope you all have a good week.

Congrats - I know that you are very proud of your students. You do know that if anyone in the top 3 drop out then your 4th and 5th place students are eligible to compete at nationals in Dallas - the only catch is you have to raise the money to go!!!
