  • 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.

    Greetings colleagues and dear friends,

    I hope you are all doing well.  This has been quite the roller coaster ride that we have been riding.  I know your days are most likely much like mine - making decisions I never anticipated having to make.

    In the end, I know we will always do what is right for our students and staff.

    Many of have been sharing our budget concerns.  We have created a document that I wanted to share with everyone.  You can find it here:
    Budget Impact - Emergency Closure

    Please reach out to each other and check on each other.  Stay in touch.  Reach out if your need help.  We are here for each other!

    A quote I saw recently is so timely:  "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.  It is learning how to dance in the rain."  Go dance in the sunshine today!!

    Best regards,


    MoASBO Board President
    Patty Bedborough
