We have a long road ahead, but I have faith that collectively we can make it.
Now is the time to share our stories about how changes in education are affecting our students. Our words are powerful, our communities support us and our students are counting on us.
This summer many of you participated in Association activities at the local, state and national level. It’s time to implement all the plans you prepared for the 2019 – 20 school year. Your work and preparation will benefit and empower all ISTA members.
I hope you took time this summer to relax and renew. Remember – even during the school year – to take time for yourself whether it is visiting with friends and family, reading, fishing or catching up on some sleep.
As I prepare for my first year, I look forward to meeting you as I travel the state.
