“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
As I reflect on my years as Superintendent of Schools, I am engulfed by an overpowering sense of gratitude. I am so grateful and appreciative of those who have gone before me - former school superintendents, school board members, community members, parents and staff members upon whose shoulders I stand. Thank you for creating and building such a marvelous gem of a school district.
I am immensely grateful to our generous and wise taxpayers who, time after time, continue the support and investment to maintain our highly skilled staff and cutting-edge programming for students. Our community has provided not only the resources to operate Roseville Area Schools, but also the motivation and emotional support essential for sustaining the high quality teaching and learning all of us treasure. Thank you for providing the peace of mind and community confidence that is imperative for academic success.
I am well aware that the continued success of Roseville Area Schools rests with a new crop of educational leaders from inside and outside the walls of our schools. They will continue to shape the district with an indispensable vision that will allow us to be successful and thrive. I am honored to work beside innovative, visionary minds that initiated programs like Fast Press reading, flipped classrooms, a middle level iPad program, a dual-language option, a year-round option, a K-8 option, an alternative high school, early college options, and AVID, just to mention a few exciting enhancements to our regular programming.
Thank for supporting Roseville Area Schools yesterday, today and in the future.
Dr. John Thein
