Message from THE President
Dear AAFEPA Family,
I hope this letter finds you well. The end of our school year looks quite different than years past; however, I am confident that each school district is doing a great job in closing out 2019-2020 while making decisions that are in the best interest of our students.
Our November conference is still on schedule to begin Wednesday, November 4th at The Lodge at Gulf State Park (I think we will all need some beach time by then). The executive committee is working to secure prominent speakers for the conference so mark your calendars!!! Registration and lodging information will be coming soon. Professional development is key to our jobs and the conference is one way to stay informed and connected. Another great informational resource we have, as members of AAFEPA, is The NAFEPA Connection. Dave and Doug do a great job keeping us updated on changes with federal dollars.
On another note, isn’t it refreshing to see the mass recognition of the importance of educators and the prioritizing of children and family amidst this crisis. I read a blurb that stated “more drastic change to education has occurred in the last month than it has in arguably the last 50 years.” The COVID19 pandemic has caused us all to rethink how we live, do business, and educate. Thank you for all you are doing!!!
In closing, let me encourage you to take care of yourself. Times like these can be draining and please know that AAFEPA is here for you. Reach out to your colleagues as we navigate new waters. I have communicated with several of you lately and am thankful for the relationships I have built in this organization. Stay safe!!!
Blessed by YOU,
