It is difficult to hold others accountable for a highly qualified performance when the elected leadership of the district is not being held accountable for the same highly qualified performance.
Our children deserve to have excellence as a role model from every adult within the system of education.
We cannot expect their best if we do not demand our best from ourselves.
Success is a learned behavior.
