  • Message from MoASBO President

    Posted by MoASBO on 12/10/2020
    This school year has been challenging for many of us in the education community. In my last blog post, I encouraged everyone to stay connected by leaning on each other for Johnnie support.
    We have had our ups and downs; but, one thing that has remained a constant for me is my family's support.

    As we work through our everyday challenges, it is the people who surround us each and every day that we begin to look upon as family.  People who walk through difficult times with us, shoulder to shoulder, though countless hours and endless days. That is the very definition of FAMILY!

    During this pandemic, my colleagues, school community, and friends have become more like family members.

    My blog message for December is consistent and simple... Celebrate those who have supported you - for me, that's my family.

    Happy Holidays! 

    Committed to staying positive and connected.

    MoASBO Members,
    Pres.  If you are like me, you never expected to see anything like this for 2020. Given the current situation with the pandemic,  it's important to stay positive and optimistic - as difficult as that might be right now - your district and community need you to be the glue that brings your community together.
    To help me in the effort to be the glue for my community, I stay connected with other MoASBO members. We can lean on each other other for support or be pillars of strength to our fellow leaders.  If you have not made those connections, I encourage you to start today.  None of us can do this by ourselves.  We need each other.
    I hope you will take advantage of the ways MoASBO supports you through connection points, timely webinars,  and peer-to-peer discussions within the online community.  These help you stay engaged and in touch.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this difficult situation begins to get better sooner, rather than later, and we are able to connect in-person again.  In the meantime, let's keep connected via our online and social media platforms. 
    Committed to staying positive and connected. 
    MoASBO President
