  • Message from MoASBO President

    Posted by MoASBO on 8/13/2020
    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

  • AMPD Up Week Reflections

    Posted by MoASBO on 5/1/2020

    Dear colleagues,


    This has been a strange week for me...well, let's be honest, the past several weeks have all been strange...but, this week had a different level of "strangeness."   For more than 17 years, I have looked forward to MoASBO's Annual Spring Conference.  It is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for me.


    Image of Patty I look forward to catching up with friends, learning best practices, sharing experiences, visiting with business partners, celebrating achievements and just being with people who truly understand what it is I do in my job.


    I miss the conference.  I miss you!


    Even though there's a part of me that is grieving what's been lost, there is much for which I am grateful.  I appreciate the work of the MoASBO staff to bring us MoASBO AMPD UP Week.  Even though we can't be together physically, I have felt the emotional connection and have enjoyed the virtual connection.


    I'm thankful for all the work YOU are doing in your districts during this pandemic.  Thank you for your leadership, dedication and commitment to students.


    I'm especially thankful for the friendships and relationships within our MoASBO community.  What would we do without each other?  In these stressful times, it is wonderful to be able to email, call, text or Zoom!  There is always someone who is willing to listen, counsel or share.


    It is impossible for us to predict the future and the impact of Covid on our economy or what learning will look like in the upcoming years.    All we can know is that we will continue to work together, support each other and do what's best for kids.


    Thank you for the opportunity to serve as MoASBO president.  I will always be honored and humbled to be a part of the board of directors.


    Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay secure in the knowledge that MoASBO is here for you.
