Welcome to Colegio Granadino and the beautiful city of Manizales!
I feel both honored and fortunate to be the new General Director of the school because this is a school community committed to excellence in student learning. The success of each student in the school is our primary goal, which can be achieved through positive collaboration and communication. I look forward to working with each and every student and parent, and I encourage you to come by to say hello whenever you are on campus.
We have an incredibly busy year ahead of us. With the help of our talented faculty, we will continue to deliver quality instruction and instructive feedback. Using research on best practices, we will continue to refine our craft as educators and help students meet their own unique potential. In addition, we will cultivate the civic responsibility of which all students are capable. We must use our passion for education as a way to enlighten the young minds we have the pleasure of teaching every single day.
Our work is not easy. But Colegio Granadino is a community of professionals. We all – teachers, principals, school counselors, support staff and the many others working with us – are collaborating in pursuit of our shared mission. We all have important roles to play in helping children reach their full potential, and we are proud to join forces in support of our students.
Of course, families and other community members also play a critical role in this endeavor, as partners in supporting both your students at home and our work in the schools. We hope that you will join us in the education of your children.
This community practices and models the core values of honesty, responsibility, respect, integrity, nobility and altruism. This community is like a family where all members are supported and encouraged. Our goal is to improve student achievement and help our students become successful, ambitious, creative, talented and spirited young adults. I am truly looking forward to making the school year a success.
