When we work with love we renew the spirit;
that renewal is an act of self-love, it nurtures our growth.
It’s not what you do but how you do it.
—bell hooks, All About Love, 2000
Here at NCMPS, we are ringing in the New Year to each of you who feels the stress, sees the flaws, and yet turns to the child in front of you with care and love. The new year has rolled in with a roar and through it all, because of it all, the children depend on you, and you rise to the occasion. Your lunch count may be off and your mats askew, but you care and they know it.
In 2022 and beyond, we wish for you a deep connection to the love that feeds your spirit and your students’ souls. It’s not what you do, but how you do it.
