For love of a job

I find myself waking up between 5 and 6 am each morning (sometimes earlier), excited about the day ahead and ready to hit the road on my mountain bike. My day begins with a morning ritual of reading the paper, surfing the Internet for quality stories, and brainstorming creative solutions to the problems that may lie ahead. I have been fortunate to have been blessed with an amazing family and fantastic friends and a fulfilling career, but this job is different.

I am inspired, energized, driven and emboldened in a way that I haven’t always been in the past. Clarity of vision, mission, and goals comes readily and I am proud to be a part of an amazing team. All too often large school districts get painted as too “bureaucratic,” “lacking innovation,” or “slow to change,” but these descriptions do not apply due to a strong leadership team that “gets it” and puts students first each and every day. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and look forward to the road ahead. For love of a job my life is forever transformed.
