My Goal in Blogging
I started this blog in May of 2008, shortly after my election to the School Committee, because I believed it was very important to both provide the community with an opportunity to share their thoughts with me about our schools and to provide me with an opportunity for me to ask questions and share my thoughts and reasoning. I have found the conversation generated on my blog to be extremely helpful to me in learning community views on many issues. I appreciate the many people who have taken the time to share their views. I believe it is critical to the quality of our public schools to have a public discussion of our community priorities, concerns and aspirations.

Tonight's public meeting consisted entirely of honoring teachers and staff in our district. Specific awards were given to four members of the clerical staff, and teachers/staff who had reached 20, 25, 30, and 35 years of service, as well as those who were retiring, were honored. If you have a chance, watch this on TV/internet because special tributes were read aloud by School Committee members (these were written by peers of the honorees), and they were really descriptive in conveying the contributions of each person to the district. We then entered executive session.
