at the home of Diane Ball

Dear School Community, 

What I love about being an educator is that we get to start a new year in September. My favorite events will be when I welcome new employees, August 27, welcome all staff September 1 and on September 3, we will welcome students. What a wonderful feeling!

At these events, I will share information about my family, my leadership story and how education changed the trajectory of my life. I will remind everyone that their approaches will determine their innovation. There is nothing more exciting than being around people who show the fortitude of infinite opportunities. People with positive attitudes are able to influence and shape our students’ lives. 

I will encourage everyone to nurture their ideas and be intentional about aligning what their beliefs are to the district’s mission:

To provide a world-class education through focus on superior instructional performance, meaningful student engagement, and challenging academic content for every student, every day.

As I start this new year, I know that my daily attitude will allow me to continue to make a positive difference for all who enter our schools September 3. I feel blessed to live, work and learn in a community where everyone respects individual beliefs and collectively embrace the expectation that all students can learn.  Welcome Back!
