Oh the Places You’ll Go this School Year!

Posted on September 18, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |

Advice for a school year by Dr. Seuss:


     “Just never forget to be dexterous and deft,

     And never mix up your right foot with your left

     And will you succeed?

   Yes! You will, indeed!

 (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)



 Be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray

   Or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,

  You’re off to Great Places!

  Your mountain is waiting,

So…get on your way!”

This is wishing you a fabulous school year!  And for everyone trying to navigate the CCSS or just do new and adventurous things be of good courage and teach like you have never taught before!


Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki
