I had the opportunity to watch our CHS drama program’s production of the Laramie Project this weekend. Wow – what a powerful play that explored the full range of human capacity from amazing hope to terrible hatred. Our students were incredible. That’s such an understatement, but I don’t really have words to articulate how moved I was to try to do better.

I hope you all know how important our work is each day. We create the safety & space for honest dialogue about who we were, who we are, and who we can become. It’s critical that we do this well not just for the students we serve, but for our world. The best way we can do that is try our best to slow down when everything seems to be moving so fast, and truly listen. Thank you for listening each and every day to even the softest of voices.
