WATWB: The Principal who Reads Bedtime Stories to Students


We Are The World Blogfest in white

Welcome to #WATWB # 22! We are sharing stories about people doing good work and bringing hope to the world.  To learn more about this monthly blogfest, visit

and the WATWB Facebook page for more positive posts.

My story this month is about Dr. George, the elementary school principal who reads stories to her students every Tuesday night on a livestream from her home. I love her genuine, fun nature and her messages like, “It’s okay to be weird,” and “Anything that’s  loving and kind, it grows much faster….”  I bet you’ll enjoy this video!


It’s hard to believe that WATWB has been going strong for two years! Happy Anniversary to all! There’s still plenty of good in the world. We are the world!

Our cohosts for this month are:  Shilpa Garg Sylvia McGrath , Belinda WitzenHausen, Dan Antion, Damyanti Biswas.

  1. I heard this story last weekend, and I absolutely loved it. I had already decided on my WATWB post, but I’m so glad you shared this story, JoAnna!

  2. Bedtime stories are invaluable

  3. What a fantastic woman. You can see she loves what she does and is not scared to go that extra mile. Such fabulous memories for the students too!❤️ Thanks so much for sharing this and for being a part of#WATWB. Two years and we’re still going strong thanks to you and the rest of the #WATWB family!

    • I especially don’t think many principals would do this. I like what she says about building relationships. Thanks for stopping by Eliza! Love, light and glitter! 🙂

  8. I love Dr. George in all of her weirdness, and that she shares her inner child by reading books in a onesie over the internet. That is fabulous! Thanks for participating in #WATWB and sharing this video, JoAnna. It gave me a Friday night smile!

  14. How marvelous to see something positive, JoAnna. Hugs!

    • Thanks for appreciating the positive, Teagan. I NEED positive news for balance.

      • One of the best things I’ve done for myself is “cutting the Comcast cord” back in 2014. Because that resulted in me watching a lot less news. I realize that it’s important to be informed, but… Well, as you said, balance. I also only watch/read stories that have my “feel good factor.” No matter how well made, beautifully costumed, or well acted, if there isn’t something in it that makes me feel good, I don’t watch or read as the case may be. I know that’s rather extreme and is not for everyone, but it helps me. Cheers.
