This time of year I have plenty to be thankful for: hot running water, a warm home, a plentiful selection (although overpriced) of food to choose from, relative peace and safety, opportunities for many outdoor experiences and family and friends that are dear to me. One friend comes to mind as I contemplated my loyal 13 followers on Facebook that I’ve had over the years.
Last week we (educators) received an email from Superintendent Steve Norton announcing his retirement from the Cache County School District this next June. The year after I started my teaching career, we heard that we were going to have a new superintendent in our district. I was curious as to what the new change would bring to not only our schools but our communities. We didn’t have long to wait as he met with the entire district in a series of opening meetings designed to introduce himself to us along with his philosophy on education in general and Cache County educators in particular.
