Hello! Welcome to our Project Stella Resources Blog! 

Growing up I always hated the question, “what do you want for Christmas?” or “what are you asking for your birthday?”.

I felt there was an expectation that I provide some list of items that seemed like “acceptable” gifts. Really, what I wanted was the opportunity to do something big – something worthwhile – that would make a difference. But, when I mentioned this, I always received the strangest of looks.

In this post, I hope to help some other child or teen out there that feels the way I did. I also want to help all the moms and dads of those teens by providing a list of gift ideas that your child will appreciate.

Hi! I’m Kim.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.18.2″ text_font=”Trebuchet||||||||” text_font_size=”14px” text_line_height=”1.8em” custom_margin=”|||” custom_padding=”||10px|” animation_direction=”left”]

I’m a wife, mom, writer, speaker, and educator. 

I’ve worked in education for over 18 years and love celebrating teachers who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of their students.  I’m on a mission to let them know that they R.O.C.K. – Radiate Outrageous Compassion and Kindness.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.18.2″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.18.2″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.18.2″ text_font=”Trebuchet||||||||” text_font_size=”14px” text_line_height=”1.8em” custom_margin=”|||” custom_padding=”||10px|” animation_direction=”left”]

Through the Schools that R.O.C.K. program, I support teachers and schools across the country by reminding educators about the feeling they had when they first entered the classroom.  The desire was there to make a positive impact on the lives of each student. Unfortunately policies, lack of support, and classroom management frustrations make so many teachers ask, “do I have what it takes?”.

BUT… YOU DO!  And I am here to be your cheerleader and remind you of the difference you make every single day.
