Remote Learning Volume 8
Reflections on the Past Week
This past week has been very difficult for American citizens, and the frustration felt around the country has led to protests and civil unrest in Minneapolis, Louisville, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and even Rochester. It is hard to wrap my head around the far-reaching impacts to our community as we witness events in real time.
Time will determine if the decisions made by local and national leaders will result in positive changes for our country, but I feel that this is a time to engage in dialogue as a community. It is a time to listen and allow everybody to be heard. My social group is exclusively Caucasian. This does not really allow for different points of view to be heard and integrated into my current beliefs. That needs to change. I need to do better as a building leader and as a community member. For those of you who wish to engage in a meaningful dialogue with me, I welcome that opportunity. Social distancing may make that difficult in the immediate future, but there are still ways to engage. I can be reached via email at email@example.com or by calling the school at 637-1840. We can even utilize technology to engage in virtual meetings. I would appreciate the opportunity to listen.
We must do better as a nation. We have an opportunity to set a positive example for change, an example we will be proud to model for our children. I look forward to your thoughts.
