Superintendent James Colbert Jr. provided an inspiring presentation based on the theme “Realm of Possibilities.” “The past few years, the annual staff meeting has focused on how we find and meet the blind spots in public education and serve our communities and clients,” said Colbert. “This innovative perspective has made me realize one thing: Anything is possible with HCDE when we come together as a team and support children. So that makes today’s theme ‘Realm of Possibility’ even more fitting.” Employees took advantage of the Twitter Wall, a social media message wall which gathered employee tweets and provided responses based on the hashtag #HCDEConvo19. From many of the postings, it was evident that Annual Staff is an opportunity to network and share inspiration with old friends as well as new colleagues. “The talent in this room is astounding, and I am proud to be on this journey with you,” Colbert said.
