It's dreary and cold outside, we are all covering classes, pulling double-duty, and trying to keep up with the demands of our jobs, all while hearing news about depressing school closures...When suddenly, a rolling cart and warm smiles saunter through offering hot coffee, hot cocoa, cookies and encouragement. Our leaders at the high school sure know how to brighten a day and make a person feel cared for and appreciated. In my job, I'm blessed to know our leadership teams on every campus and in every department. They all put a personalized touch on leading with kindness, thoughtfulness, strength and hope. Thank you to all of you today for believing in your Pirate Crews and showing that you are happy we are here doing important work. Brighter, warmer days are ahead!
