Why do you do this work?
I strongly believe in a quote from Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
As educational leaders, we all must accept our role in educating our youth to lead healthy, productive, and successful lives. When I’m not working, I’m actively involved with my ten grandchildren ranging from ages one to thirteen and their activities. They, along with all children in our community, are the reason I continue to encourage and empower families on finding excellent schools.
