As we begin our 2017-2018 school year, I want us to operate with the mindset of a “No Excuses” attitude. The “excuse” is the first thing that we grab for when we see that our students did not academically achieve as expected. Think about the hard work you put in last year, reflect on your practice for improvement, continue to take time to research and learn more about the art of teaching, and use this last week to push the reset button for success.
Our most important investment is our students. As you know, education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. Inasmuch, we must hold true the action of "Dreaming for our students - until they can dream on their own!"
