Message from the President
I am elated and motivated to be your SCAEOP President this year. I have chosen “Education is our business, Excellence is our standard, Passion is our fuel” as our theme for the year. This theme embodies the essence of SCAEOP and helps to further establish our goals as a professional organization. Additionally, this theme reiterates that not only are we in the BUSINESS of education, but that we engage in various educational opportunities through the Professional Standards Program, professional development, and networking with one another. It is important to remember that we should intentionally be excellent in all that we do; thus, creating a standard of EXCELLENCE that blazes the way for others to follow. Lastly, know the passion that fuels you in all that you do and why you do it. It is important to remember that when your day seems long and you haven’t received a pat on the back, that there is a PASSION within that drives you a network of colleagues who support and appreciate all that you do.
Know that I am committed to doing my best for the association and its members. I am looking forward to a year of excellence. It is my hope that through professional development, celebrating and acknowledging recognitions, and collaborating with each of you that we will grow stronger as an association.
Remember that SCAEOP would not be SCAEOP without each and everyone one of you.
