“We are the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District.”
That sentence starts off our positioning statement. Exactly, who is Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District? Well, several groups make up our district, and each is vital to our success – families, staff, and business owners/workers.
Today, we are focusing on the people who have chosen C-FB ISD as their work home. We have great people who work in C-FB ISD. Our team models this Albert Einstein quote, “Your job is a self-portrait. Autograph it with excellence.”
At the heart of any effective public school are classroom teachers. We truly believe that the teaching profession is the most valuable. Without educators, professions such as scientists, lawyers, technology experts, doctors probably would not exist.
A great teacher always challenges us to do more than thought we could, be more than we thought we could be, and achieve more than we thought could. C-FB ISD has so many, many remarkable teachers who do just that for their students.
This week, Angela and I along with Dr. Burns and Dr. Cole joined the C-FB ISD Educational Foundation Board members. We handed out 17 teacher grants around the district. We had a great time making surprise visits with Foundation Board members to the classrooms. There were lots of cheers and jumping up and down as teachers learned that they were receiving money for their ideas.
