As partner to Mark Smith in the Smith’s School of English company as well as a multiple Smith’s Franchise owner, I habitually read the SSE Soapbox and do so with great pleasure. It is obvious our Smith’s Franchise Team is very happy and that everyone enjoys their work very much.
Most of us like to write about special students, memorable lessons and extra-curriculur get-togethers. In addition, I have recently begun to take special notice of ourselves, the dedicated people working together within our Smith’s Franchise TEAM. I think we as a TEAM have grown to a level that allows us to start congratulating one another!
Let me congratulate Al Bartle, Owner of the Smith’s School in Okamoto for his very special effort in contributing right here, to the SSE-Soapbox that is so important to all of us. Evaluating Al Bartle’s truly outstanding contribution to the Soapbox, it is obvious that he possess the highest possible esteem for his own business and his students. In addition and equally important, Al clearly cares deeply about the Smith’s Franchise system as a whole and the happiness and success of every one of us working together in it.
Thank you Al Bartle for your extra special effort! Keep it up!
