In Case You’re Wondering: Hopes, Dreams & Expectations
As I reflect on my first two full months on the job, I honestly do not know where those first 60 days went; they have flown by. I have had the opportunity to meet many great people inside and outside of the organization and I continue to be amazed at the wide variety of resources and staff that we have available to help the students of USD 253 be successful. I have also witnessed a large number of #EmporiaProud moments that continue to make me feel blessed to be a member of this organization.
