A Reminder from Dallas

I’ve always viewed the beginning of each school year with optimism.  Truly, the excitement around schools in September is tangible!

This short video, (now four years old), consistently reminds me of the opportunity and importance that schools hold.  The message that young Dalton Sherman provides to 20,000 educators in Dallas is a wonderful reminder of the importance of education.

Dear Mt. Spokane community,

I am excited and honored to begin the 2012-13 school year as the new Principal at Mt. Spokane High School.  The tradition of excellence that is synonymous with MSHS reaches far beyond the boundaries of the Mead School District, and I am sincerely thankful for the opportunity to serve the community in which I reside.

The priority at Mt. Spokane High School is to ensure  students receive an education that prepares them for life after high school.  With a dedicated staff, involved community and supportive district, the notion of preparing each student for post-secondary education/training will be at the forefront of our work together.  I am hopeful that students leave the hallways of MSHS ready and eager for the challenges of their 13th year.

Again, I am truly thankful for this opportunity and look forward to the many success stories that are sure to transpire during the 2012-13 school year.

Thank you for visiting my blog!  I hope you check back often.
