As we move New Mexico Schools back to engaged, face to face, for a majority of our students, I know that each of you is taking an active role in what that looks like in your district. This “restart” is not without complication or challenge and I am certain that each of you is setting the tone for this return to “engaged practice.” I have had the chance to visit several of you in-person over the first part of April and I continue to be even more sure that our students and communities are blessed to have your focused and quality leadership. Lots to do!

A Message from the President, Will Hawkins

I recently was reminded that student outcomes don’t change until adult behaviors change.  In order for adult behaviors to change, we all have to be reminded that we have a responsibility to put aside any personal goals, ambitions, issues or grievances for the greater good of the thousands of students throughout the state.  It isn’t “they” or “them” that needs to change; it is all of us who must proclaim and embrace “I am New Mexico.” We have to work interdependently, to create opportunities for students to succeed. As a new administration and legislature continue to review old and establish new policies, statutes and rules impacting education, the New Mexico Coalition of Educational Leaders stands ready to work collaboratively on behalf of children, parents, teachers, and all those who have devoted their lives to the institution of public education.  I am astounded and humbled by the servant leadership that permeates to every corner of the state, and I look forward to playing my small part in helping shape our future.  May we all remember that our focus is simple … to do what’s best for kids.
