Dear Team Lufkin ISD,
During this time, we reflect on the beauty and simplicity of being truly thankful.
I am thankful for my family. I am truly blessed with a wonderful husband and two amazing kids who continuously make me proud to be their mother.
I am thankful for my career in education. There is a Confucius quote that says, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I know the power of an education and recognize that it was an education that changed the trajectory of my life. I love serving and making a difference for future generations.
I am thankful for each of you – for your hard work and faithfulness to Lufkin ISD. I am most grateful to be associated with you and proud of the work that you do each day as you work tirelessly to connect education to the American dream.
I pray that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I hope you make time to express your gratitude, spend quality time with family and friends, and contemplate all your blessings.
According to Alice Walker, “’Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”
In closing, thanks for all you do!
