Where: At the Atlantic City, NJ SHRM conference.
How: It was in our bag. Often you get a lot of things that may not be useful. By far, this was the best item I ever received.
Story: When I got home from the Conference, I looked inside my bag and there was this book. Today, I finally had the opportunity to read it and it truly touched my heart. I often hear I'm "Just A". Everyone has something that they can do and/or say that can made a difference in someone's life. We all make an impact every day. I am going to share this book with my team. My personal goal is to recognize those simple moments that I probably took for granted or missed.

How: I will give this card to Kelly Mitchell
Story: Kelly Mitchell might be a custodian according to payroll, but he is so much more than that to the students of Taylor Co. Elementary School. He celebrates students' accomplishments and birthdays, he reads with students, he defends students when they are being mistreated, and he makes sure a smiling face is the first thing students see as they exit their cars. He is a motivator, mentor, and positive role model for our students, and he makes a significant difference in the lives of our students every day.

How: Holly Oliver
Story: Holly is an ECE teacher in my school. Whenever I ask her to do something for kids, she always says yes with a smile. She never complains. This morning, despite having pulled a muscle in her leg and being in pain, she was standing outside getting students out of their cars. This is her morning duty. She was greeting students with a smile. Most of us would not have been on duty this morning. We would have said we couldn't because we were hurt. However, Holly was out there getting children out of their cards with a smile on her face. She made their day and mine.

How: I received this card at a district training on making a difference through simple acts. I am giving this card to Melissa.
Story: Melissa is a first grade teacher. She is being given this card by her principal. Recently, we had an extremely different situation arise with a student in our school. Melissa welcomed this student with open arms. When Melissa was told this student was being placed in her classroom, she did not bat an eye. She gracefully said I will take this student and immediately began brainstorming ways to make the student comfortable. I appreciate Melissa's positive attitude and willingness to work for the good of this student. She may not have realized that her action in this simple moment spoke volumes about her composition as a person.
