From Beginning to End and The Beginning Again! Finally, it looks like spring is here to stay. May 1st marks 24 days remaining in the 20-21 school year.

As the winds of March are beginning to settle and the freezing temps boast their last hurrahs, our minds and hearts look forward to spring… finally. It has been a long year for many, if not all of us. Yet together, I believe, we have done great work. It has not always been easy… but […]

This month seems to be a bit of that and a bit of this as a message. At the district level, we are moving forward with the work of preparing for the 2021-2022 school year while also having our feet planted in the day-to-day, month-to-month activities of 2020-2021. I want to share a couple of […]

I had this article started… actually almost finished… before the 1st and as usual, my procrastination to put the finishing touches has led me in a different direction.  Last night as I was winding down from a day of working with data, I was flipping through recent articles on one of my feeds.  I came […]

Living through the pandemic has become our new normal and the rhythms of our work are cycling within that. This is not necessarily good or bad; it is just our being at this time. I continue to believe that we will return to a greater assemblance of how things were over the next year.   Writing […]

As with so many months, I have this article written in my mind..even drafted on the computer and at the last minute I change it.   It’s one of those things that can drive me crazy about myself.  Today is the first day that all of our KDG-12th grade students are in the buildings at […]

I know this article is long, but I ask that you please indulge me. I have the opportunity to visit with students when they get their school permit.  It is one of my favorite parts of the job.  Should a student make poor choices in the conditions of that permit, sometimes the school has to […]

I see a pattern forming in my life. It starts about mid-month and heightens through the end of the month. What is my message for the month going to be? It marinades and simmers until the last moments and then it comes together. It’s actually kind of a fun journey. Some would say I need […]
