College, Career, Citizenship (and more blogging!) in 2012!

Happy New Year to all of the Highline community!

A classic scene from Des Moines Elementary, one of the visits I'll blog this month
The first four months of the school year flew by for me. What a whirlwind it has been! It seems like just weeks ago we were getting ready for the school year to start. As a former teacher, I should know that's what happens, but it gets me every time!

Since September, I've been to more than 50 schools, worksites, and community groups. Visiting our community and meeting so many wonderful folks has been the absolute highlight of being in this job. This month I'll be visiting the five schools (out of 33) that I haven't yet been to, as well as worksites such as transportation and facilities.

This fall, I've done a better job of making visits than getting them up on the blog. I plan to fix that with a flurry of January posts until I've caught up. And a blog is nothing without readers, so my heartfelt appreciation to you for checking in here!

Whatever you do for our students, thank you. We know our students can achieve at the highest levels when we believe in them and when we hold high expectations for our students and ourselves. Let's make 2012 the year Highline achieves greater equity in ensuring all students are prepared for college, career, and citizenship!
