Over the Thanksgiving Break, I spent much time in conversation with friends and family. I was asked about how my work is going. I told my friends how much I enjoy my work. Not only do I care passionately about the business of school, and the students in our care, I enjoy watching and learning about the growth occurring in our students. It gives me energy to lead this school. A recent example is a conversation I had with a parent about a “pivotal moment”. The parent told me that when her son joined Craig it “was a pivotal moment” in her son’s and their family life. We all know it is the student’s daily attendance, every day, that moves the pivotal moment into a pivotal experience. We all have those times in our life when we remember something that happened to us, and for our students, the pivotal moment becoming a pivotal experience shows all us that we have made a difference.
