Staying positive in the face of bad news

2013 December 12
by HISD Communications

In recent weeks, a few serious cases involving our staff have brought scrutiny upon our district and our employees. We take these cases very seriously, as we are entrusted with the delicate business of educating and setting positive examples for children.  

Those cases, however, are not representative of the many wonderful initiatives, programs, and people in HISD. We must keep a positive outlook and proud spirit toward our common goal.

At HISD, we are the hundreds of exemplary, veteran teachers, administrators, and staff members who return day after day, year after year, because they believe there’s no enterprise more important than the business of education. We are the eager army of new teachers which graces our classrooms each year, committed to one of the toughest jobs in our society.

We’re the thousands of support staff who have provided office services, food, transportation, security, and clean facilities for generations of Houston’s families, workforce, and leaders.

I hope you’ll stay strong for our critical mission, and remain uplifted by the work we do daily for the future of our children.
