Fired Up

Before school started, every single employee of AustinISD was invited to a convocation. One of the lows of this convocation (other than the hour it took to get there in traffic) was hearing the superintendent congratulate Austin ISD on its achievement and then hear her "hit home" with statistics about the failures of Austin schools. I would have much rather had this kid.

Seriously, it is very difficult to honestly answer this question for all of our students. The challenge of believing in every single one of our kids is large. The challenge of believing in every single colleague is perhaps even larger. Really, have you heard a ten-year-old recently with words more powerful than his?
