We need to make the positive so loud that the negatives are almost impossible to hear.

We need to make the positive so loud that the negatives are almost impossible to hear.  – George Couros

Society today requires public educators to have a positive growth mindset.  We have an increasingly challenging role in our communities, but we embrace the challenge with the belief we are making a positive difference.  We are changing lives . . . we are shaping the future.

It is imperative that we tell our story, that we share our narrative.  We can’t continue to permit negative forces to create the narrative of public education.  We control our message, our brand, and our communications.  Be intentional and embrace the Power of the Team to proudly share the good news.

Celebrating the positive doesn’t mean we ignore areas for improvement; living a growth mindset also means constant reflection and improvement.  We listen to concerns and we analyze our performance.  We live our value to Pursue Excellence; we embrace the productive discomfort of change.  We share the positives, reflect on areas of improvement, and commit to our purpose as we prepare every student to be Ready for Tomorrow.
