Where did principals go in February?
MESPA Institute! We laughed, we learned, and we were inspired to be more effective leaders and improve student learning. We loved Michelle Krell and Rae Villebrun
welcoming us as the Fairy Godmother and Dorothy in the land of Oz, i.e., Institute. We appreciated Commissioner Cassellius' presence,
both in opening our second general session and in joining our awards banquet. We all got her cell number, should we have any education concerns, and her quote from Sen. Wellstone set the tone: “We all do better, when we all do better.” We heard Roger Aronson
tell us that education goals put before last year’s Legislature are “deader than disco.”Mark Scharenbroich
reminded us that the favorite day of the year for students is THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, and gave us guidance in rising to their expectations. Dave Weber
reminded us that if we look ahead and don’t like where we’re going, and look back and don’t want to return to where we’ve been, we need to step off the path; we have the power to create our true north and know where we’re headed.And now it's time for follow-up.
