Two years ago, I heard Frank DeAngelis speak at Columbine High School, and his message of love and connection changed my life. I've always loved my job, the people I work with, and most of all, my students. After hearing Frank speak, I realized that although I felt this way--deeply--I rarely said the words "I love you" out loud. I do that now.
An ultimate wish was to have Frank tell his story to the students and staff of EHS and to the administrators of our district. Today, that dream came true when Mr. DeAngelis spoke to our entire student body, our staff, and anyone else who works for Rockwood District and wanted to attend.
Ask your child what Frank's message was and commit yourself to telling the people in your life you love them and commit to showing them; it's what our time on earth is all about.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love your kids.
