Scott and Leslie,

I wanted to personally thank you both for the important work you do at FOTPS and for the great honor you bestowed upon TAMSA last night. (Texas Public Schools 2016 Friend of the Year) Until I was heading to Waco last night, I never really stopped and thought about how rare it is for TAMSA moms, TACS superintendents, and educators in general to actually stop and celebrate and be appreciated for all we and they do. It was wonderful to have a night of celebration! As I always say, a little positive reinforcement goes a long way! That exemplifies the mission of FOTPS and I want you to know how much I appreciate it.

In these crazy times and the war being waged on public education, we are poised to be on the defensive as never before, and last night was really a “filling of the cup” to give us all the strength and the will to keep up the fight. Your work in support of public education is invaluable and the positivity helps fill the fuel of those of us who must continue to fight for what is right!

Again, many thanks for the honor and for your work showing all of the good in public education in Texas!

Blake, Jennifer and Scott,

I just want to thank you for a fabulous event other night in Waco!  You did a beautiful job of honoring people who have made a difference in public education.  We were super impressed with the number of superintendents who came a long way to participate with this group.  That says a LOT for all that you have put together, and the importance of what you are doing.

Thank you for letting us being involved with this group, and thank you each for working hard to make a real difference in our state, and ultimately our future!

Dear Judy, (Judy Rimato, Associate Superintendent, Klein ISD)

I just want to let you know how much I really, really, really enjoy the Ambassador Meetings. I agree! Leslie and Jane are amazing ladies and doing great work on behalf of public education. Thanks so much for continuing this program in Klein ISD.  Each meeting helps tune me back into the importance of always being an “ambassador for education” both inside my building and out.
