Welcome to The Link

Dr. Rodger’s Reflections:

Hello all and welcome to this month’s edition of HCDE’s The Link.  As our brilliant students file back onto school buses and into classrooms, we are once again reminded why we chose this wonderful profession.  We get the opportunity to create, inspire, motivate and mentor our next generation of professionals.  And while that is super rewarding, it does not come without conflict or challenge.  In this month’s edition of The Link, we provide resources to help you face those challenges, but also plan for success school year.  We wish you a safe school year filled with lessons learned and a plethora of success!

“And suddenly you know…It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.”

Meister Eckhart
