Our calling to be educators is a noble one, and we will meet the challenges of our profession each day head on. The circumstances that we face in education today have led me to evaluate what I love about working in this field. The relationships we build with young people are beneficial to both teacher and student.
For our theme this year, I have chosen “Let’s BEAR Down”. To “BEAR Down” is defined as: to overcome; to exert full strength and concentrated attention. The challenges that both teachers and students will face as we begin this school year will force each of us to “BEAR Down” and overcome the obstacles placed before us during this pandemic. I have no doubt that each of you will exemplify this standard as you work to get our students back on the path to success!
