Dear Community Members:
It is with great gratification that I have the opportunity to write our school’s introductory salutation to all entrusted stakeholders of the
El Monte-Rosemead Adult School (EMRAS).
Another wonderful year is upon us all. As the new Principal of the EMRAS, my primary goal is to stop at nothing to sustain the 70(+) years of distinguished traditions. From my recent learning, I have become immensely fond of the rich traditions and customs, existing at the EMRAS. Thus, the EMRAS has established specialized learning atmosphere, by way of caring teachers and support staff, a student-centered curriculum, and a plethora of learning opportunities that are tailored to your individual learning and/or occupational essentials.
Moreover, as we begin the new school year, I encourage anyone to stop by my office, simply to create a meaningful conversation(s), which builds on the core of trust. I am interested in learning and talking with anyone that frequents our school, or someone that merely requests additional information about our dynamic services, mission, vision, and core functions of the organization.
In closing, since joining the EMRAS team, many stakeholders have asked me about the budget crisis and how it will impact existing programs. The truth is, as key developments are announced, my responsibility to our school is to interpret the salient points of the information, and then meet with our various groups to transfer knowledge, regarding specific modifications that will require implementation and support. That said, I want to establish our relationship, rooted in positive energy as we work towards continued excellence. I look forward to connecting with everyone, and
as soon as possible.
Yours in education,
Keith B. Wheeler, MA, Principal
