Former Congressman John Lewis once said: "I tell people all the time if you see something that is not fair, not right, and not just, then you have a moral obligation to do something about it—to get in the way, to get in trouble." You, our graduating Class of 2018, are that future, and I know your time at Turning Point has helped you to conceive of the ways you can "get in the way" to disrupt the status quo, "getting in trouble" both by learning history and creating your own.

As I reflect on a year of wonderful milestones, both as a parent and as an educator, I try to be present with all my complex feelings and thoughts. We tend to make decisions based on what we hope the future will bring, but the truth is that humans are most satisfied when we remain in the present and experience the myriad thoughts and emotions in each moment.

Worry fuels my desire, as an educator and the leader of our school, to ensure that we are fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, which as we know, improves learning outcomes for all students.

This summer's Community Read is Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School. We chose this book because it's one of the best resources for understanding how knowledge of neurology can help us teach children, and also improve our own adult lives.

Childhood is a dynamic time of change, and it is this process that yields delightful unveiling of children's talents, traits, and interests that calls our wonderful teachers to this work.

This time of year emphasizes change as we contemplate next steps: whether your child is going to sleep-away camp for the first time, leaving Turning Point to begin high school, moving from preschool to kindergarten.

At Turning Point, we have found that a particular magic happens when you provide opportunities for young students and elders to come together to tackle important issues and share perspective.

What makes a great teacher? This is a question that many of us have pondered at one point or another, either as students ourselves, or as parents working to provide our children with the best educational opportunities possible.
