It is with mixed emotions that I say goodbye to Sherwood. Sherwood is an amazing school, filled with some of the best teachers that I have ever worked with in education. The leadership of this building is outstanding, which continues to foster the growth of our teachers and your children. Your children are absolutely incredible and only grow stronger with your support. This is what drew me to Sherwood and is what makes it so hard to say goodbye.
I value all of these things, tremendously, which only made my decision that much tougher. I have been offered an exciting opportunity to work with Strive Together Partnership, a subsidiary of KnowledgeWorks, as the Director of In School Support. I have wanted to utilize my education background to give back to the city of Cincinnati, especially in the area of urban education. In this role, I will have the opportunity to impact education on a much larger scale which will help impact academic success in urban education, ultimately assisting in breaking the cycle of poverty that our inner city students face.
So, the end of this school year is quite bittersweet. Sherwood has had a huge impact on who I am as an educator, as well as a person. It has been truly a blessing to be a part of such a great community. As much as I hate to say goodbye, it’s time for me to turn the page and begin the next chapter in my life. Thank you so much for your support. I will miss Sherwood very much.
