As I write to you this month I realize that the summer is only weeks away from ending. I hope you found time to spend quality time with family and friends, rejuvenate yourself, and make your plans for the upcoming academic year.
I know each of you joined this profession because of a passion to help people reach their full potential. While we do this tirelessly each and every day, we sometimes forget to give the care needed for ourselves. Sometimes this profession can feel very lonely. I ask that while you give yourself to others each and every day to also give to yourself. Support your colleagues and friends across the globe. We can't do this without one another. I think sometimes we forget that none of us have all the answers or get it right every time. All we can do is give our best and support one another. We are all in this together to change the lives of all those we serve. Give one another the appropriate challenge and support and let's continue to change this world one student and individual at a time.
I am proud to serve with each and every one of you.
