Thank you, Harold

To the editor:

While the average length of a Minnesota superintendent's service to a rural/suburban district is five to seven years, Harold Remme has served our New Ulm district for 16 years. To know Harold is to understand his success. Harold's main focus is students and their learning. Over the years I have heard Harold discuss budgets, class sizes, professional learning communities, academic standards, teacher evaluation methods, and other education concerns. Regardless of topic, Harold's concern for students has been obvious. It explains why he got up at 4:30 a.m. on a wintry morning, drove into the countryside, and checked out road conditions to determine whether it was safe for students to travel to school. It also explains his interest in partnering with other New Ulm school systems, including Martin Luther College (MLC). Harold understands that the quality of teacher education is directly related to student learning. Harold encouraged MLC to place clinical students and student teachers in New Ulm classrooms and served on our first education advisory board. He met with our accreditation agency and with the Minnesota Board of Teaching to voice his support for the college. Harold sees all aspects of education through the most important lens, the students. For this, we thank you, Harold.
