As I enter my new role as superintendent for Breckenridge Community Schools, I think what is it that I want to leave as my legacy? I have been pondering this for many months as this decision was made. In short, I want a Huskie Nation!
A Huskie Nation is a community of people who are bonded together with pride by a shared experience within this school system. Webster’s Dictionary defines a nation as “ a large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity”.
We are more alike than we are different. I am the first female superintendent for Breckenridge, but gender is not what is important. I don’t live in the district, but I choose to be a part of this school community and serve it. It is my commitment to the students of this school system and it is yours that makes us alike. It is the fact, that I am sufficiently conscious of our unity. I am entering my 30th year in education and my 14th year here. I am one part of the Huskie Nation. I am proud to work with the highly qualified and dedicated administrators and staff along with a Board of Education who volunteers their time to impact education in a positive way.
I have had very difficult days as a principal, I have attended funerals of my student’s parents. I sat with a third grader in her home the night before she passed away. I have felt the fury of adults who don’t behave well but mean well. Life is difficult and each day we are a participant, we have the choice to find the good in each day and in the shared experiences we have. I challenge each of you to find the unity, be a positive participant and build a stronger school community. You will be better for it and so will our children. I would like each alumni, parent, student and community member to speak with pride about our school and our experiences. Make a choice to focus on the good we do, help make it better and voice the positive. There will be disappointments and disagreements, but there always are in any relationship that matters much like families.
Wear your blue and gold with pride! There are many reasons to do so! I welcome you to share a point of pride with me. I promise that I will share it! Join me in building a stronger Huskie Nation!
