Rebecca Fillion , Principal of Twin Valley Elementary School in Wilmington, is this year's recipient of the Henry R. Giaguque Vermont Elementary Principal of the Year Award. This is the speech she shared at the Vermont Principals Association conference this year, where she was honored. Several attendees asked for her speech, which many shared as part of their opening day activities at their schools. She delivered the speech again on WSSU Opening Day at Twin Valley Middle High School where all educators in our SU heard her call for commitment to seeing and reaching for the potential in every child, regardless of circumstances. As we greet our students at the classroom door this week, this commitment to holding ourselves professionally accountable for doing everything we can to reach every unique child inspires our educators here in WSSU, and teachers across Vermont.
