Superintendent Mitchem: Valley View must “fight the good fight” to help children achieve
BOLINGBROOK – Valley View School District Superintendent Dr. James Mitchem addressed more than 150 district teachers, administrators and staff members Wednesday at the opening session of the Valley View Summer Leadership Academy.
“In order to continue to make progress in its ongoing battle to make sure every child is prepared for college and a post-education career, Valley View must give its educators every support possible to help them succeed in the classroom,” Mitchem said.
“It cannot be done without you,” Mitchem said, adding that the problem plaguing education nationwide is not the educators themselves, but the support educators are given and the systems in which they work. “Nothing matters except for what happens between the teacher in the classroom and the kids. Everything else we do must be designed to support that notion. That is our goal, our mission, our passion.”
