North Avenue News - October Superintendent's Column
October 3, 2015
Wow - I am as excited as a first grader on the first day of school, with my new lunch box and all! The privilege of leading educators (teachers, office staff, caretakers, etc.) to mold young minds is a tremendous prospect that should not be taken for granted. It is an honor that the community, Board, staff and students have chosen me for this endeavor in the Burlington School District.
The task ahead reminds me of a Chinese phrase, “Wai ji”, which I have been told translates to meaning Change, but at the same time, can mean Opportunity. As we look at changes that need to be made over time, it presents an opportunity to redesign our structures and practices into something that can move our organization from “Good to Great”.
