Call the Preppies In

Call the preppies in is a little throw back to something that we used to say where I grew up. It’s a deviation of Call the cows in since I grew up on a ranch in Midlo, TX, and yes that stands for “middle of nowhere”. Well, actually, that’s my BFF’s interpretation of my hometown. I have an amazing family, wonderful friends, and the most rewarding job in the world- I teach.

It goes to show..


One person, one idea at a time can change the lives of many children.

I want to share this story with you about a bus driver in our district.
Pretty cool and inspirational. :)

Three years ago, (we'll just refer to him as "Mr. B") began a reading program on his bus. Students would read on the buses to and from school and he would give away a little prize (pencil/eraser, etc..) to the student who read the most each week. As the year progressed, several teachers began noticing that their students were improving in the area of reading. When the teachers asked their students about their progress, they told them that they were reading on the bus…

Now in year three of the program, the “Reading Riders” program has spread to seventeen of our district buses. The program was featured in the National Transportation Magazine this summer, our district started receiving phone calls from across the United States on how to get the program started. The program has received letters of congratulations from the Governor Rick Perry AND from the President of the United States, President Bush.

Amazing how one idea can go a long way :)

That's really neat. I certainly didn't have bus drivers like that. We had Ernie who got fired for showing up to work high! That was pretty much the last time me mom ever let me ride the bus.

How wonderful. We just need seatbelts on those busses! Or has that changed?
