Hi, I am an Assistant Superintendent responsible for curriculum development and implementation (among a million other things) in a school district serving approximately 3600 students. In June of this year I will retire after 41 years of service as a social worker, school psychologist, and education leader. Looking back I am proud of much of what I have done, looking forward I believe the road ahead is daunting because of all of the blind spots. I wonder if any of my colleagues are experiencing the same transition and would be interested in sharing their thoughts here? If so I would enjoy the opportunity to learn from others. Jose'

I'm sure you're hearing it from your colleagues, but I wanted to send you a big gigantic Thank You for dedicating your life to education. I can't think of a more worthy career.

I wanted to share this blog with you:
