Fifty Years of Supporting Special Education: Congratulations MASE!

I had the pleasure of greeting attendees at the MASE conference that began on October 27.  What a great group of educators! Our colleagues at MASE are celebrating the organization’s 50 years of existence. Congratulations and here’s to many more years!

Might you join us at the Equity Symposium?

On Monday, November 8 from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm MASA is sponsoring a one-day in-person session intended to support leaders in their equity work.  Sebastian Witherspoon, Executive Director, Equity Alliance MN, and Katie Pekel, Principal in Residence, University of MN will facilitate the learning for this day. Please see the link in the main portion of this newsletter to register. A big thanks to the MASA Foundation for supporting our equity efforts!

Leadership Matters:

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you found it.” - Steve Jobs
