As the new Director of Schools, I look forward to facing the challenges that await and formulating the solutions to any new issues that arise, together, as we face the uncertainty of the 2020-2021 academic year. I am confident that we will come out of this stronger and more prepared for the future Covid-19 issues that we may experience nationally, statewide, or locally. Most of all, I believe we will be more appreciative of the great opportunity we have to shape the lives of young people from the day they enter our buildings as Pre-K students to the day they leave as young men and women receiving a diploma. We are truly blessed to call ourselves educators. No matter the role you have in the system, you are a difference maker.
