November 7: Gratitude

"A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude" 
Bruce Wilkinson

This morning I have much to be thankful for. This is an important time for gratitude.

As a father, grandfather, and educator for over 24 years, I am thankful for so many in our community that care about public education. 

As a husband, I am grateful for a wife who tirelessly supports my career. She deserves better.

As a father, I am grateful for the sacrifices my children endure while I work in public education for other children. They deserve better.

As a partner to the group of volunteers I work with, I am forever grateful of the strong bonds and new friendships forged in the trenches together. You deserve thanks.

As an employee of 5 Board of Education members who champion Graham, personalized learning, and modern schooling, I am blessed to work for you. You deserve thanks.

As a supervisor of a fabulous team of administrators, I am grateful for that #Legion, who give their blood, sweat, and tears to bring equity and access to our children. You deserve recognition.

As a supervisor of a large group of wonderful teachers, I am grateful for their resilient leadership, dedication, and teamwork in the face of historic external odds. They deserve much better.

As an educator who is charged with providing a holistic experience in a healthy system to produce the next generation of Americans, I am grateful for the 1980 youth I serve daily, who remind me of my personal and professional vision and missions in public education. They all deserve the best I can give. I am grateful for you.

As a human being, I am grateful to those who took time to vote and to consider our historic need, and who championed Graham. Graham deserves this consideration.
