There is no way to mildly convey the message of this blog post, so I will just go head first into the matter…I will not be returning to Woodland Jr. High School next school year. I have accepted a job as an assistant principal at Leverett Elementary School in the Fayetteville School District. Working as a school administrator has been a goal of mine for quite some time now and I am very excited that I get the opportunity to pursue that goal and do so within the current school district that I already work in. However, I am going to miss Woodland so very much. I have been here now for 3 years and it has been a wonderful 3 years at that. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best students in the state of Arkansas and consider myself very lucky for that.
Woodland has become my home over the past few years but now I will make Leverett my new home. I plan to continue blogging as an administrator but I’m not sure yet in what manner. For the rest of the summer I plan on doing some research to find out how other administrators use their blog in order to discover how I will use my own blog in the future.
I am very sad to leave Woodland but I am also very excited about the new possibilities that this new position will hold. I would like to thank all of the parents and teachers that I have worked with over the years and most importantly I would like to thank the students. You all have made the past 3 years the best of my professional career. Thank you.
