SAN JOAQUIN'S PRESIDENT MESSAGE

Dear CASCWA Members and Friends,

I cannot believe that we are already entering December and the end to our first semester is a couple of weeks away.  Everyone has worked hard and despite this state going through so much in 2020, from the pandemic, the economic fallout, the largescale switch to virtual learning, we’ve gone through it all.     

In speaking with many colleagues throughout the state, I have been very impressed with the work they are doing in helping their districts.  I have been very fascinated with our colleagues who have set plans that have worked for their district and their continuation of sharing ideas, and giving examples of much needed resources.   In times like these it is great to see your commitment, passion, creative solutions, and courage to go above and beyond our traditional roles. 

The San Joaquin Section is proud to announce that our first Roundtable Zoom Workshop had 200 attendees.   Our Board is proud and would love to give a round of applause to two members from our very own San Joaquin section.  Mr. Manuel Escandon from Fresno County Superintendent of Schools and Mrs. Kristi Jackson of Fresno Unified School District who gave awesome presentations.   Mrs. Jackson and her team have taken Fresno Unified to new heights when it comes to attendance, as well as new techniques during virtual learning.  Her team and district have worked hard in building their program to become recognized as a state “Model SARB” district and should be mirrored by others.     Once again thank you Mr. Escandon and Mrs. Jackson.

I’m proud to announce our second Roundtable Workshop will be held on Friday, December 4th at 8:30 a.m.   The theme is “Supporting Students to School After COVID’ and will be presented by School Climate Specialist Jenny Betz from WestEd.    The San Joaquin Section will continue to bring virtual professional learning opportunities for our members and we would love to hear of any suggestions or ideas that could benefit all our members in supporting our districts. 

Our section hopes you have a restful and much deserved Thanksgiving and Christmas break.  We pray that everyone returns rested, relaxed and re-energized and that the New Year brings blessings to all.  Thank you for all you do!

We’re in this together.

Stay well,

Praxades Torres III

San Joaquin Section President
