Sierra Sands Unified School District Superintendent Joanna Rummer joined superintendents around California in Monterey Thursday and Friday for a symposium.
“The superintendent’s symposium is a conference designed to address the professional development and personal development and needs of superintendents,” she said. “It basically covers current trends — what’s happening in education — the politics surrounding those specific things.”
Rummer said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson addressed the symposium about his Educator Excellence Task Force.
“I agree with his statement that teaching is the mostimportant job there is, and it’s time to treat teachers with the dignity as professionals that they are,” Rummer said. “I totally agree with that.”
She said she is glad Torlakson made those statements.
“What I hope is that through this program teachers who are involved in it come out feeling supported and have a renewed strength and inspiration for having participated,” Rummer said. “They really do a wonderful job. They’re educating the future of our country. I’m glad he made those statements, and hopefully this program will promote that.”
