As the school year winds down, I’m already thinking about SISPA activities for next year. I guess that’s some indication of how much I love this part of my job.
First, I wish you a season of refreshment. I hope summer leaves you energized and ready to engage your students next fall. I hope you find some new and wonderful resource or have an experience that will underscore the importance of what happens as we teach our students to produce high quality media.
Second, I have a request. If you meet someone (or have met someone) that you think would be a wonderful asset to our Winter Conference next Feb. 21, email me and let me know. I am always looking for new faces and new voices. I’m excited to share that two of our own advisers, Steve Garland (Belleville West) and Andrew Crider (Granite City) have agreed to do sessions on brand new topics, and our work to develop an electronic/digital strand for contests is continuing.
Thanks to you all for all you invest in your students and congratulations on all that you have accomplished this year. I look forward to working with you again next year.
