Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Whether this is your first year in teaching or your fortieth, whether you have spent your entire career in Highline or serve as a guest teacher, I want to thank you for your dedication to our students. Our students are brilliant, beautiful and brimming with promise—and because of you they are able to realize their potential and achieve their dreams.
As Teddy Roosevelt said, “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” The work you do is hard, but as I have said before there is no work that is more worth doing than yours.
It remains the best part of my day, any day, when I am in your classrooms seeing you work with our students. Thank you for inspiring not just them, but all of us. It remains a joy and privilege to work alongside you and serve as your superintendent.
Together we are delivering on our Highline Promise to know every student by name, strength and need so they graduate prepared for the future they choose. Together we are Highline.
