Custer Principal Trish Stallard

Dear Custer Families,

One of my favorite things about working in the education field is that we get two opportunities to start fresh every year: One in August and the other in January! So as we head into 2019, I encourage you to do some fun goal setting with your kids. Something that I work on with the scholars is something called “Mental Time Travel.”

We travel together to their future in the following destinations:
Home and Family
Education and Career
Hobbies and Recreation
Community and Service

This way, rather than just talking with kids about what they want to be when they grow up (their job), I talk to them about who they want to be (their whole person). You will be surprised at how this gets their wheels spinning and how it provides some handy information for us about their dreams for the future so that we can remind them about those goals and dreams that they are trying to reach every day. This is how we teach hope!

I’m looking forward to an amazing 2019, filled with hope, resilience and hard work with you and the kids!

In Partnership,
Trish Stallard
