Champions are made over time. Before the trappings of success are enjoyed, you have to do the work, break the sweat and make the sacrifice. The Champion and the Champion to Be start out by simply outworking everyone else.

With that in mind, I want to share some pictures I took today. Here are over 40 elementary teachers working together to create short-term common assessments that they will use in the upcoming school year. On the surface, not so unusual, until you realize that they are from multiple campuses and they are volunteering their time. No one is on contract and no one is getting paid. And they are coming back tomorrow.

If you aren’t working to get better today, these LYS teachers are either catching up with you or passing you by.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
