It’s that time! The kids are back on the bus, with the smell of freshly sharpened pencils in the air and the excitement of the first days of school on everyone’s minds. As we all settle back into routines after what has been a lovely summer, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about a few changes that will affect this school year.
One thing we know from research – and common sense – is that great teachers make a tremendous impact on our kids’ success. If you’re like me, you can remember the wonderful teachers in your own life, as well as the dedicated and talented professionals who have taught your kids. We are fortunate to have many excellent teachers in the schools in our community and our state!
