Fellow School Executives,
I am both honored and humbled to be offered this opportunity to serve as your 2013 President of the Louisiana Association of School Executives. Having served the past five years as the District 5 Representative on the Executive Committee has provided me the privilege of learning from some of Louisiana’s most outstanding educational leaders. It is my desire that I may be able to draw from these experiences and over 28 years of service as a classroom teacher, coach, athletic director, school and district administrator so that this organization will continue to provide a source of support and assistance for the educational leaders of our state.
As a member of the LASE organization and its national affiliate, AASA, you will find unlimited opportunities to network with Louisiana educators/administrators as well as other educators throughout the country. Membership not only provides you the chances for networking and professional development, but also:
- $1,000,000 liability insurance per year
- 30 hours of free legal service per year
- Legislative updates related to education
If you are not currently a LASE member, I strongly urge you to consider membership to this distinguished organization. If you are currently a member, I thank you and vow to serve you to the best of my ability. Please make plans to join us at our annual LASE Conference in November 2013.
Education in our nation continues to transform and evolve on a daily basis! If we are to survive as a nation, we must continue to prepare our students and teachers to compete in a global society. We have a responsibility to provide the means and opportunity for ALL students to learn and thrive as an educated citizenry prepared for the challenges of the future. The LASE organization will continue to provide a venue and a voice for all educators so that we can ensure that our children’s needs are top priority and will not fall prey as political pawns.
If you have any questions or need additional information about our organization, please contact your LASE District Representative or any Executive Board member.Sincerely,
David M. Nordman
Supervisor of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction
