I, like millions of people around the world, have been glued to my television each day, eagerly watching Olympic coverage for as many hours as time allows.

The song that’s been played repeatedly during the women’s gymnastics segments is Phillip Phillips’ Home, which he sang during the American Idol finale.

Every time I’ve heard it on television, I’ve grown to love it more and more.

Oh, the musical nuances are lovely, but I mostly like the words, which speak of a place where one isn’t alone and where one can trust his or her family members to always be there.

Because this is what I strive for in my classroom, I’ve decided to make this my theme song for the year.

I just happened upon the following video, and I plan on showing it to my students at some point during the first couple of days of school.

It is vital that my students feel loved and accepted…especially because they are struggling readers.  Additionally, most of my students have unstable home lives.

It is my prayer that my students grow academically but, most of all, that they see, from example, that there are some in the human race who are on their side.

Enjoy the video!
