We experienced the pleasure of hosting an event earlier this month, and I could not have been more pleased with the conversation led by our team as it related to supporting student success through challenges faced by parents and teachers in meeting the needs of our children. I will endeavor to use this newsletter over the next few installments to initiate a deeper dive into this critically important issue and share “ten practical steps” in hopes of providing support as we work together on behalf of our students.

I have a little brother, two years younger than me. While growing up with a single mother who worked, the job fell on me to take care of him. I made sure he made it with me to catch the school bus, and I walked him home from school. I spent much of my childhood looking after him, and I occasionally wake up today in the midst of an older era asking myself if he is alright. During our childhood, he was my best friend and also, much work!
