After recent reflections, it is time for me to move on and continue my work in a different community. While I will miss Millcreek Township greatly, I am excited to take on new challenges and opportunities in my career to serve students, educators and a community .
Millcreek family, in arriving at this decision, I am conflicted because I have enjoyed my time here immensely and appreciate all the support and kindness that each you have shown me throughout my three-year tenure. I assure you that I will always cherish the relationships I have built with the students, teachers and community members; and some of these will be lifelong connections.
As I depart, I want to express my confidence in the ability of the board, leaders, teachers and staff to continue the important work of providing high-quality education to the students of Millcreek Township as you grow from GOOD to GREAT! Hard work of everyone involved in the school district will ensure that 100% of the children continue to receive a world-class education that enables them to reach their potential as life-long learners and responsible citizens.
