A message from Ohio Education Association President Scott DiMauro.
As we stand on the threshold of a new school year, I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings to each and every one of you. These are undeniably exciting times, filled with the promise of reconnection and the opportunity to shape the future of education in Ohio. The past three years, it has presented us with challenges that none of us could have predicted, yet through it all, our commitment to our students and their growth has remained unwavering.
The start of this school year marks more than just a return to classrooms; it signifies a resurgence of hope and the chance to build upon the lessons we’ve learned. Our educators have displayed immense resilience and dedication, adapting to ever-evolving circumstances while remaining steadfast in their mission to provide quality education. This commitment goes beyond academics – we understand that our students’ well-being, both inside and outside the classroom, is of paramount importance.
In this journey, we recognize the importance of unity. The coming together of educators, parents, and the community creates a powerful force for positive change. Our partnership with parents and the community is integral to the success of our students. By working hand in hand, we can ensure that our students receive the holistic support they need to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.
One of the pressing challenges we face is the recruitment of fellow educators who share our passion for nurturing young minds. As we embark on this exciting school year, let us not forget the critical role that our colleagues play in shaping the educational landscape. Let’s join hands to attract and retain the best and brightest individuals who will contribute to the growth and development of our students.
In closing, let us embrace the upcoming school year with unwavering optimism and a steadfast commitment to our students. Every challenge we face is an opportunity to learn and grow, and I have no doubt that our educational community will rise to the occasion with the grace and determination that defines us.
Thank you for your dedication, your resilience, and your unwavering support. Here’s to a new school year filled with boundless possibilities and the promise of a brighter future for Ohio’s students.
