Hello world!

Self-Portrait of me!Salutations!  My name is Beth Van Amburgh and I am honored to serve as princiPAL of LaRue Miller Elementary in Midlothian ISD, Midlothian, Texas.  For a twist this year, I accepted a challenge to blog about daily school life here at LME, thus this venue will be the fruits of my writing labor.  I endeavor to:

  1. tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth;
  2. share wit and wisdom from the learners and leaders of our learning community;
  3. offer research-based thoughts on hot topics (well, if I’m telling the truth, then personal interjections may occasionally be somewhat biased); and
  4. give hope during waves of educational change.

Please enJOY the attached portrait of me compliments of a learner sharing her artistic talents.

It’s time to ring the golden bell, LaRue Miller Elementary, on our 2011-2012 school year!  Welcome!
