Needle in a Haystack
Sometimes out in ”the trench” there is a sense of disconnectedness to the work we do. And yet, this front line work is critical to the experiences our students have each and every day. I vividly recall my Grade 1 teacher, Mrs. Taylor making each day so interesting and exciting for me. I could hardly wait to get to school every morning to see what new, different and challenging things we would be learning!
In working alongside school Principals, my new endeavors are connected to the day to day lives of students in each and every classroom. My learning over the past five months has been about the commitment we provide to ensure we continue to be an outstanding system – searching for those “needles in a haystack”.
One goal – simply – to ensure that each child, every day with no exceptions - has excellent experiences working with outstanding teachers! A lofty goal in the haystack, but oh how worthwhile in the end.
