The Bismarck Bunch!

I was delighted when my best friend and roommate, Miss Moore, invited me to her third grade class at Bismarck Elementary School. This was my first time reading the book, "How Full is Your Bucket?" to third graders... the oldest bunch yet! They followed along great with the story and understood the lesson of being nice to others while filling our buckets. Miss Moore explained third grade to be the grade of bullies since some boys grow faster than others. I never realized how well this book addresses bullying... a lesson they needed to hear!

Including today's visit to Bismarck, I have shared my platform of "Second Chances: Empowering Youth to Rise Above" in 12 cities across the state of Arkansas. I think it is highly important to have an age and event specific message while keeping the theme of good choices, second chances, and mentoring through obstacles. If you need a guest speaker for a banquet, classroom, civic club meeting, or youth group... I would love to come speak! Email me ( and we will work out the details!

Everybody knew the answer to my question. "What did you learn about the bucket?"
Third graders!
Empty bucket... enough said.
The perfect "full bucket" face
The best student teachers, Miss Luff and Miss Moore
