Happy Thanksgiving to all our students, families, teachers, staff, and the entire Milwaukee community! I hope you all have a warm, safe holiday and that you are able to spend time doing things that bring you joy.
I am incredibly grateful for my family, my friends, and my health. I’m also grateful for the opportunity to serve the students of MPS and to have the chance to help improve education in Milwaukee. The key to a growing, thriving city lies in youth who are well-educated and are prepared to lead, to imagine, and to take action. I’m thrilled to work with the many teachers, staff, and administrators who are so talented, energetic, and dedicated each and every day. All of you have my heartfelt thanks.
The world is a little brighter when we appreciate what we have and are thankful for the important people in our lives. May all of you have moments of peace and contentment that come from gratitude.
