Dear Mr. and Mrs. Weathers,
It’s with heavy heart I write this letter to all the parents of students here at St. Francis. You may have already heard rumors to the effect, but I wanted to make an official announcement about my retirement as the school’s principal and sometimes math teacher. My last day in the office will be at the end of this school year, June 28th.
When I first entered this building 18 years ago, I was a graduate student. I thought it would be a pit stop. A way to continue paying for my studies. Little did I know I would fall in love with teaching and find a deep affection for trying to instill a love of learning in others. I would be remiss to imply there were times I wanted to run from the building screaming, but there were far more times when I thanked God He chose to put me on this path.
When I was appointed principal in 1994, I gladly took the reins. I had so many ideas and dreams for this school and am happy to say I have seen them to fruition.
May I say it has been a pleasure partnering with you and all the other parents and teachers and students that made my tenure here such a pleasure?
