Quotables:

  • Relationships are everything. One word or one negative conversation can break down that relationship so it is important to be very cognizant of your conversations.
  • The great educators are the ones who seek out the learning that they want.
  • We are all doing what is best for students right now, regardless of what your best is.
  • I let teachers know I am a resource and if I don’t know something, I will find it. I will find it for you and we will work through this together.
