My Challenge to You

The week of finals is upon us. Can you believe that? The fall semester is drawing to a close. 2015 is all but gone. It seems like just yesterday it was June, I was in the office meeting many of you for the first time, unpacking boxes, moving furniture around, interviewing some of you, and starting conversations that continue today. Time flies when you are having fun and working hard.


As we progress through this week please keep a couple of things in mind.


  • Please continue to set clear expectations for your classes. Students will see what they can get away with. Clear expectations will curtail much of these attempts.
  • As students are completing finals that you set expectations for what they can and cannot do when they complete their exams.
  • Click here for the final exam week schedule.
  • Please keep students in your classrooms as much as possible. If students need to go to another classroom they should have a pass from that teacher. There should not be a lot of movement because so many exams will be administered all week long.
  • The holiday season can be stressful for everyone, students and staff. Pressures are high this time of year because of finals, because money is tight, because there is insecurity of what will happen for 2 weeks away from home. Please be extra patient this week-- with student and each other.


I hope that you are able to get some much needed rest during the Christmas break. Please take some time for you. Relax. Take the much needed step away from work for several days. When you come back in January I want you to be ready and refreshed, not tense and feeling overworked. Just as Adam Saenz told us in August, if you do not take care of you then you cannot take care of your students.


This Christmas season, my wish for you is to take care of you. Please make taking care of yourself a priority.


Think. Achieve. Succeed.
