Un mensaje del Superintendente Dr. Clint Carpenter & Martha Fields, Director Interino de la División de Instrucción:

¡GRACIAS, Directores de Windham, por su sobresaliente trabajo al dirigir nuestras escuelas!

El Gobernador de Texas Greg Abbott proclamó el mes de octubre de 2017 como el "Mes de los Directores" en Texas. En todo el país, los estados se están tomando el tiempo para agradecer a los directores por su dedicación para crear éxito estudiantil y seguridad escolar. ¡Los directores del Distrito Escolar de Windham no son una excepción!

Se espera que los directores sean líderes educativos, disciplinarios, constructores de comunidad, voceros, analistas de presupuesto y guardianes de mandatos e iniciativas de políticas. Los directores establecen el tono académico para sus escuelas y trabajan en colaboración con los maestros para establecer objetivos de rendimiento y mantener altos estándares de currículo. A pesar de los desafíos de trabajar dentro de los confines físicos del Departamento de Justicia Criminal de Texas, estos educadores proporcionan el liderazgo, el trabajo duro y la visión necesarios para ayudar a sus estudiantes adultos a reconstruir sus vidas y alcanzar una segunda oportunidad.

Estamos sinceramente agradecidos con los Directores de WSD por el arduo trabajo diario, la experiencia y la pasión que comparten para ayudar a otros a transformar sus vidas. ¡Están haciendo la diferencia todos los días! Por favor dígales "¡Gracias!" Por un trabajo bien hecho!
