Weekly Staff Bulletin

"We must be willing to accept messy days and remind ourselves that struggle and frustration are inherent parts of the process of creation." Joshua Black, teacher
Last week was a particularly difficult week for many of us, but I continue to be inspired and motivated by you and your contributions to SEED's students. I firmly believe that this school's community, we surround ourselves with is by far more gratifying to me.
I have a true appreciation for the trust and respect that we all show each other, the fact that we can disagree and still maintain our admiration and support for our colleagues work. Thank you for allowing me to build trusting relationships with all of you and for always coming to the rescue for a fellow colleague.
