As superintendent, one of my favorite parts of the job is getting to visit our outstanding schools. As you may recall, I spent many years in schools as a teacher and administrator – and I know the importance of hearing from the voices in our school buildings. Far too often, superintendents can become insulated and worse yet, out of touch with the work happening in our classrooms.
This fall I’m once again visiting each and every one of our 56 schools. As I work to meet with every teacher and employee, it is clear that this community cares deeply about our children, believes in their potential, and places a high value on education.
