Hello ANESU Families,
I hope your summer was filled with a lot of great family time! I also hope you and your children had a chance to recharge and get ready for what is promising to be an outstanding 2016-2017 school year!
I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to return to work in ANESU since leaving my sixth grade classroom at Bristol Elementary School eight years ago. I know, and have always known, ANESU does amazing things for its students and I am thrilled to return home to take part in the great work happening in my own community.
It has been a steep learning curve for me so far. I am rapidly learning more and more about the scope of work before me as a superintendent. While my responsibilities may be vast, I believe my primary role is to support principals and teachers as they work to improve the lives of children in our schools. After all, that is the reason we, as an organization, exist.
I am routinely impressed by the hardworking individuals within ANESU. To focus all of this hard work we need to come together as a five-town community to create greater clarity around the purpose and direction for our school system. In order to achieve this I will be working with various stakeholders to develop a process to bring our five-town community together to articulate a vision for ANESU. A common vision will assist students, staff and community members in developing a strategic plan with specific action steps needed to realize our vision. With clarity of purpose and specific action steps we can be confident our hard work is focused on getting us where we want to be.
These are exciting times in ANESU! I encourage you all to take advantage of opportunities to help shape the future of our schools. I look forward to working with you!
Patrick J. Reen
Superintendent of Schools
