“Be True to your School” – the Beach Boys
Watching a Beach Boys cover band last week brought this almost forgotten song to mind and fond moments to remember from Dixie Hollins High School back in 1969. We were definitely true to our school! We’re still looking for memories to share from our high school days or memories from your high school days which brought you to who you are today. Were you a great parent? Top chef? Successful writer? Teacher, minister, business person? How did you contribute to others in the last fifty years? How did high school influence your thinking, actions, and goals achieved? Whether simple or grand – every achievement is worth the share! You are appreciated!
It’s been almost fifty years since our graduation from Dixie Hollins High School and we certainly have some catching up to do.
Over the years we’ve gone into different vocations. Many of us became teachers or worked closely with students of all ages. Those who didn’t may have fond memories of a teacher who inspired you to enter your chosen field.
National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6th through May 10th, 2019. Do you have a fond teachable moment or a favorite teacher memory you’d like to share? If so, click on “reply” to share. We’d love to hear it!
That said, here’s special appreciation to all teachers past and present – especially those who realize(d) the true meaning of education as espoused by Sydney Smith…
THE REAL OBJECT OF EDUCATION
“The real object of education is to give children resources that will endure as long as life endures; habits that time will ameliorate, not destroy; occupation that will render sickness tolerable, solitude pleasant, age venerable, life more dignified and useful, and death less terrible.” Sydney Smith
