Big news today! Our District’s school superintendent turned in her resignation! People outside of PPS may not know this, but for all intents and purposes – this is terrific news! Of course, nobody knows yet who will follow, but it is the sincere hope of many, many people that it will be someone with actual leadership skills. Fingers crossed!
So, how does one celebrate/illustrate this news? Honestly, I have no idea. I’m going for warm and fuzzy, as it is a feeling that stands out. It is warm and fuzzy, because there is a glimmer of hope in the unknown that lies ahead. Of course it can turn out to be a disaster, but I’m going to go for a spoonful of hope, until proven otherwise. Like corduroy, it is all in the direction of the fibers. The hairy leaves of a Tibouchina grandifolia look completely different depending on which angle you view them from. For the sake of the future kids of Portland, let’s hope the future holds a silver lining. Change is good, and in this case, it can’t come soon enough!
