As we approach this Thanksgiving Holiday and break, I thought I'd take some time to share what I am thankful for in our district.

Before I took this position, I really didn't realize the hard work that occurs behind the scenes. I've been able to witness first-hand what all of our techs do to make our classrooms connected yet safe. I am so very thankful we have such talent.

I am thankful for our teachers, especially our risk-takers who think outside of the box and who are so very patient with the frustrations that come along with taking those risks.

I am thankful for our "Laynes" & "Neils" out there with such a great vision for this district. The focus on technology in curriculum is beyond anything I've seen before.

I am thankful for being in this coaching position and for the great working relationship I share with my "co-coaches."

I am thankful for our eager students who so intrinsically embrace what we (adults) consider new and innovative.

I am thankful.
