Let us set aside any preconceived notions and let’s recognize that while we may have disagreements, we can — and must — come together, find common ground and put the needs of our students first.
In all seriousness for many, the events of the last few weeks have likely raised more questions and spawned more confusion than they have brought light and clarity.
So, for starters, please know, I’m a ‘door open’ type of person who listens more than speaks.
All of us here can help bring unity by personally committing to being more open to, and patient toward, views different than our own.
We believe students deserve learning environments that foster innovation and curiosity, and are also free from harm.
I’m committed to working with you to make this the case.
