I’m expensive. Not really.

At the very least, I’m going to need a free t-shirt, but everything else is negotiatble.

Call ahead as I’m swamped with requests (not really).

    The first website is my own, the second, obviously the school’s. We are very small and located in the Western Basin of Lake Erie. I have lived on this little island my entire life and am now in my 15th year of education. Yes, I am that old…

    So, you do appearances? Cool. What would you “appear” to do? Would love to hear more about it.

    My teachers and I could use a little pep talk. Maybe just your humor. Anyway, let me know if you’re interested in coming for a visit. And, as for the cost – maybe I could put you and your wife up at my retreat? (Which is located on the mainland ten minutes from the ferry, and it’s a women only retreat, but I can make an exception. Check out my website. you will see.)

    Why does my face show such an angry green monster? I prefer something in purple with a pleasant smile. Can you change it?

    No. Because I don’t know how.

    You are too funny to be a superintendent-are you sure you don’t teach middle school? Much appreciated…

    I’m only a Superintendent until someone decides to make a change.

    Superintendent Smith- I suggested to the people at SDE that you’d be an excellent speaker. We need more people with common sense addressing educators and parents. It helps if you spice things up with some humor, give examples listeners can relate to, and mention family members in a positive light. Oh yes, using foul language isn’t in vogue. I vote for you. Please keep tweeting and blogging……….Rose

    Very cool articles Mr. Smith I like how they are very easy going but still sending a truthful message. I wouldn’t mine picking your brain on a few things your brought up in your blog. I think we could come up with some cool ideas.

    Hi Michael! Great blog (and last name, ahem :)
    Education is so important and I love seeing people actively discussing how to make improvements.

    I work for Quincy Jones and we want to share a “movement” that we’re starting, with individuals such as yourself, who are passionate about our education systems.

    #ThanQMusic is a way to start a conversation about the astounding number of music programs that are continuously being cut from schools across the US. Music programs are essential to education systems and we feel it’s up to us to show why it’s important.

    The goal is to start a movement of people who realize the importance of teaching music in schools—music programs will continue to be cut, until enough people stand up and push back. The hashtag is a way for people all over the world to share a “ThanQ” note to music; whether it’s a picture, statement, drawing, or video, it all adds to the ultimate goal of having a cohesive voice that sticks up for our future generations.

    Feel free to participate in the movement by sharing your ThanQ note to music on (Facebook, Twitter, &/or Insta) by using #ThanQMusic and share with your friends. If you have any questions or even feedback, please feel free to reach out and let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
