As we come to the end of another school year, reflections are commonplace at Clarksville ISD. We pause to consider the successes of the school year and what changes are needed for a successful new year. We often think… Is our job at school ever done? Hardly! Every child comes to us with needs specific to that child and these needs often change from day to day and minute to minute. Decisions arrive after serious consideration of doing what is best for the children of CISD.
The news from the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas touched each of us in various ways. Our hearts were heavy with pain and sadness as we watched the reports of lives lost. However, we experienced happiness and relief when we saw parents, children, teachers and students reunited.
Those heartfelt emotions help us refocus on the reasons school district staff, teachers, administrators and board members are called to the field of education. Each child encountered deserves the absolute best moment we can offer to them. Our jobs are not simply those of teaching academics...our jobs include ensuring that the "whole child" is our focus. We serve as educators, motivators, parents and mentors. We will continue to strive to make each child's today a better day than yesterday. Remember…”Be All YOU Can Be At CISD!”
