Boss's day is this month and so I would like to take time to thank every Hawaii educational leader. School administrators have stepped up in a time of uncertainty, stress and vulnerability. Author and speaker Brene Brown recently said "A crisis highlights all of our fault lines. We can pretend that we have nothing to learn, or we can take this opportunity to own the truth and make a better future for ourselves and others." Her simple advice for getting through this time: "We have to be intentional about choosing kindness and generosity.”
As we continue to move forward this school year, the next few months will once again test our strength as we adjust with school openings. I wish you the best during this second quarter as you make the necessary decisions for the best possible outcomes for your students, staff and community.
