We’ve all been there – it’s December 31st and you make a resolution you likely won’t keep. Two years ago, I resolved to lose weight…then a colleague brought in chocolate to the office. That resolution lasted a week. Last year, it was journaling every day…and then I had a couple of busy days and chose sleeping over writing. That resolution lasted a month.
This year, I am focused on resolutions that I know I can keep. Resolutions that will make a difference in the lives of thousands of children in our city’s most struggling neighborhoods.
With my Stand Indiana colleagues, we are resolving to partner with parents to support their children’s education, advocate for programs that will make a positive impact in the classroom and elevate the teaching profession so that our future builders are respected at the same level as other professions. Our motivation to keep these resolutions comes from you – the dedicated parents, community members, and partners who power this work.
