A Message from our President:
To My Colleagues in Education:
First let me say what an honor it is to serve as your president this year! Thank you for this opportunity to grow together as we embark on a new year of leading and learning. When considering all of the new initiatives, legislative mandates, and accountability measures that are expected of us, being involved in a professional organization is more important than ever. Our organization exists to support the work of elementary principals by providing professional learning and networking opportunities. Having been involved in GAESP for over ten years, I have seen the the importance of professional membership and the shared knowledge and expertise that results from professional networking. Essentially, by leading together we can do more with less.
Our association depends on an engaged membership. We want to hear from you. Your ideas and input are invaluable to ensuring that we provide relevant and timely professional learning opportunities. I encourage you to get involved in your state and national associations. GAESP, GAEL, and NAESP can provide unparalleled opportunities for us to grow as school leaders.
Now, as you know, we have been granted increased “flexibility” to make decisions in our systems. With this flexibility comes numerous questions to be answered and local decisions that will impact various aspects of our profession. We’ve all heard the adage: “Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.” It is more important than ever that we communicate, reassure, and remain focused on providing the very best learning environment for our students and the best working environment for our staff. I wish you the best year yet. If I can help you in any way, please feel free to contact me!
Your GAESP President,
Amy M. Duke, Ed.D.
