Dearest Directors,

Choices
 
One…
One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,

And…one choice can change your life
.
—Mac Anderson
 
I saw this quote today and it made me think of you and the work that you do…educating students with disabilities.  What if the last line was:  One choice can change A life! 
 
That describes what you do every day.  You make choices… one at a time….hundreds a day…that have the potential to change the life of a child!  Whether it is a staffing decision, the development of a new program, or bridging relationships with a parent—that one choice can have huge implications!
 
We are heading into the summer where there are many decisions to be made for the next school year.  I challenge us all (me included) to see each decision point as critical, realizing the long term impact for our students.  No pressure, right???  Just know that I have confidence in you! --Ginger
