Happy New Year!!!
We greet 2018 with reflections of the past, anticipation of the future, and resolutions to be better people, to accomplish our goals or to make a difference.
The most important thing for us to collectively get right is preparing our children for the future. Every one of us has an integral role to play, whether parent, superintendent, administrator, teacher, board member, community activist, faith-based leader, elected official, business leader or student. This has to be one of those, “from all walks of life” missions. We have to agree that the preparation begins at birth and while we know that the parent is the child’s first teacher we also know that it is much more complex, requiring every one of us to contribute. Of course, one of the challenges is to orchestrate the collaboration, working in harmony, ensuring that no one is left behind. There is a great deal to be done and much of it is hard work, but always exceptionally rewarding.
I know that we can get it right together, and look forward to the challenges, hard work and dedication it takes to educate the young minds of our most valuable assets – our children!
