School Leaders,

It was my honor and privilege to celebrate you in Crystal City.  As a career teacher, I know you are in the most influential role in a district. You are amazing, especially earning this honor during a pandemic. You, with other school leaders, hold the power to create a safe and inviting environment for staff and students to learn and grow.  As recognized exemplar leaders in your state, you have an opportunity to impact your broader school community and education in general.  I look forward to continued engagement with you.

Below you will find the following;
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and find some time for yourself.
