As the holiday season comes to a close and 2023 has officially begun, I would like to officially greet you with, "Happy New Year/" I hope that your winter break was both restful and recharging. My hope is that the month of January allows us to take time to reflect on our lives and professional and wellness practices, as wen as become the best versions of ourselves.
As I look back over these past years, I realize how impactful the last two have been. The pandemic has permanently changed all of us by single-handedly shaping the manner in which we educate, communicate, celebrate, and navigate life as we know it. However, with the new year comes the promise of better days. Though as a state and community, we've made tremendous progress in managing COVID, there is still continued action required by all of us.
