Every summer, I hope to share words of wisdom that will inspire families as we embark on a new school year. As the first day of school approaches, many students and parents are feeling a mix of emotions-excitement, fear, and hope among others. I would like to share with you some of my favorite quotes that have challenged me to leave my comfort zone and take risks and given me hope in difficult moments. May these words of wisdom offer you strength and inspiration in the days ahead. To find more helpful advice, please see our August newsletter.
