Welcome to 1st grade! I have been teaching at NES for 22 years. I was born and raised in Needville. I am married to Jeff Labay and have 3 children. Cody is the oldest. He is a sophmore in college. Kailey is the middle child. She is in 10th grade at NHS. She is a varsity cheerleader and plays volleyball on the JV team. Collin is my youngest. He is a 7th grader at NJHS. I am very excited about this coming year and look forward to many memorable and wonderful memories. A quote from a famous author named Jon Gordon is very dear to my heart. It says:
The love and energy we invest into our life and work determines the quality of it. The love we share in raising our children or developing employees or helping a customer impacts the final product. The love, or lack of love, we give ourselves and share with others will determine whether life is sweet or sour. It determines the fabric and texture of our relationships and how others perceive and receive us. When we love our kids, they feel it. When we stir the pot at work with love, our customers and colleagues notice. Just as soup is a reflection of the soup maker, our lives, careers, and businesses are the reflection of the love and energy we put forth.
