• Michael Jordan once said, “I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.  I don’t do things half-heartedly.  Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.”  Similarly, Ms. Washington, Ms. Negussie, and I would like to propose a challenge to consider how our departmental work ethic compares to working whole-heartedly.  What additional steps must we take to assure the total success of this team and our students?
