With the Winter Break upon us and 2015 drawing to a close, I encourage all friends and stakeholders of Atlanta Public Schools to reflect upon the difference we make in the lives of Atlanta’s children.
I am thankful that we, as a community with many talents, have come together to share those gifts with one another and, most importantly, with our students and staff. While we’ve had our struggles, we’ve also had successes.
I am thankful that I get to work with some of the hardest-working educators, administrators and professional support staff in public education. But most of all, I am thankful for our beautiful students and committed colleagues across the city who give us hope for the future and have amazing talents and gifts of their own as shown by the winners of my annual Winter Card Contest.
I wish you all the best of the season and a safe and Happy New Year with friends and family!
Reflections of 2015
We in Atlanta Public Schools had an amazing 2015 fall semester as shown by the images below. We will miss all of our wonderful teachers, staff and students over the Winter Break. I’ll be back and tweeting and blogging again in the New Year on Monday, January 4, 2016!
