Winter is here!

The winter break is quickly upon us and with that comes renewed hope for the upcoming year.  Although I have many personal "hopes", I find that my professional hopes are also numerous!  Here are a few of the things that I hope for as an educator:

A leadership style that is supportive and allows professional growth for those who are directly involved with students (so re-energizing!). 
Staff who love what they do and never lose sight of the "why" they became educators.
Students who understand that school is the key to a successful future.
Ongoing collaboration within communities to uphold the belief that "it takes a village"...
Patience and understanding when times get hard (and they DO!)
Positive working relationships.
A healthy school environment.
An universal belief that it is important to educate all students.

I wish you all happy holiday season and that your "hopes" for 2015 are fulfilled!
