Inspiring students to their fullest potential


Unlike many professions, educators are in a continual cycle of preparing, testing and evaluation, with all eyes focused on the year-end finish line of student test scores.

Schools are one of the most scrutinized institutions in the country, and for good reason. But as you know, it can make for a demanding regimen that can wear down even the most enthusiastic teachers.

That’s why it’s important for school leaders to provide support and encouragement to finish strong for the school year. Make sure teachers know you’ve got their backs and that you appreciate their efforts in building a better future for our students and for Mississippi.

Support networks are important in life and in work, but there’s often no distinction between the two if you’re an educator. We knew that when we chose this field, and in many cases, it was why we gravitated toward education.

It’s all about making a difference. That’s why MASS serves a special purpose in uniting superintendents around shared goals and values as we work to improve public education in Mississippi.

MASS conventions are a great opportunity to build camaraderie and prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead. If you haven’t already, make sure to reserve your place at the Summer Convention set for July 8-12 at Beau Rivage Resort by visiting

Finish strong, and I look forward to seeing you in Biloxi!
