I value our strong partnerships, the capabilities of our staff, the commitment of our Board of Education and Leadership Team, and I absolutely adore our wonderful students. This year is my twenty-seventh in the amazing field of education. I have loved every step of my journey, and joining District 30 continues to exceed my expectations at every turn. Investment, kindness and care with a clear focus on what is best for our kids permeates this district.
Today’s District 30 Sing exemplified our collective commitment to our culture as we came together as one family. Our students were respectful, and they shared their talents in a packed Maple Gym. It was truly amazing!
As we reflect on 2015, including some of the recent world events, I hope you remain filled with incredible optimism for the future. I can’t help but reflect on President John F. Kennedy’s quote:
“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.”
Simply put, the strong education we partner to provide matters. Our clear belief across District 30 in actively engaging students in their learning as we intentionally develop character and perseverance is obvious and inspiring.
I have quickly felt connected with the District 30 Family, and absolutely know that I am lucky to serve you as your superintendent. On behalf of our Administrative Team and our Board of Education, thank you for your support of, involvement in, and partnership with District 30. We wish you and our students a relaxing and rejuvenating break that includes meaningful memories with those you love.
I look forward to an outstanding 2016 with District 30!
