It’s been a busy start of the school year in EPISD and I am at a loss for words to describe just how proud I am to be part of this amazing school district. The spirit of “I am EPISD” is truly resonating throughout the community and — best of all — it is creating a better learning environment for our children.
As we start our fourth week of school, and following a successful rollout of EPISD PowerUp’s laptop distribution to all of our high schools, I can truly say that the level of commitment I have seen from our employees has been inspiring. From the techs who helped get nearly 16,000 laptops ready for distribution to the dozens of central office employees who helped with the physical handing out of computers, I saw nothing but collaboration and amazing EPISD spirit.
Moreover, it’s been great to see how our teachers are reacting to PowerUp and the laptops by creating active-learning lesson plans and opportunities for our kids. If you want to check out some of this, go to Twitter and do a search for #IamEPISD.
Needless to say, I feel inspired and ready to take on the rest of the year. To share in some of the inspiration, I want to provide this link to an amazing list of teacher-centric posters I found while doing some research this week. I found them to be funny, clever and even touching. I hope you do, too. Here they are.
