AASSP and AAESP Back to School Message from Robin Jones and Jennifer Rinaldi

We hope this message finds you well and that you were able to rest and recharge this summer. As we embark on what could be another challenging school year, the associations wanted to pass along some keepsakes to help you navigate leadership in uncertain times. 

We need to keep understanding

It is important for us to stay informed during the pandemic and equally essential for us to understand how the spread of COVID-19 will impact our students, staff, and communities in different ways.  

We need to keep growing… 

While it is easy to feel set back when things do not go as planned, we have to continue to cultivate and model resilience so we can optimize our opportunities for personal and professional growth.  

We need to keep moving…

The amount of loss that everyone has felt is overwhelming and unimaginable, but it is critical that we learn from our past experiences and keep moving forward. 

Our hope is that as we keep understanding, growing, and moving forward, we can still provide an excellent education for our students while taking care of ourselves and our families in the process. AASSP and AAESP are here to support you every step of the way!
