Josh Hobbs came to our school last year as a second year teacher.  He teaches Art in all its forms.  I've been so impressed with Josh!  He came to a classroom that had tons of material from previous teachers, a schedule that he didn't choose or have input on, and ended up needing to teach an extended day, which meant that he had no prep period.  Add to that the fact that his wife had a darling baby girl and he started working on his Masters degree.  This would be enough to put anyone over the edge! Yet - Josh came and continues to come to work every day with a smile on his face and an eagerness to work with his students! He loves to share his love of art and to help students find success as they try new things.  His positive attitude is contagious!  There are days when I purposely seek him out just so that I can feel better.  He is human - he does have days when he's frustrated, but he manages to find solutions that are positive for everyone involved.  He also has been so willing to help out wherever he is needed/So many of his colleagues have commented on what a great addition Josh is to our staff.  He truly exemplifies the Spirit of  the Mustang!
