After 15 years at Southtowns Catholic School, it is time to step aside and enter into the next adventure in my life. My journey at Southtowns Catholic will come to a close on June 30. The journey has been full of love, laughter, tears, some rough times and many good experiences. Our school is centered in Christ and I am confident that it will remain the same well into the future because He is the only reason for our school.
I have said this many times before and it is my deep belief that Southtowns Catholic School is a very special place, where everyone involved in the school is part of our school family community. Our children are joyous and happy because they feel comfortable and safe in their home away from home. I am blessed to witness a smile on a child's face, wipe a tear, receive a hug, hear laughter, see the pride on a child's face after completing a difficult task, watch children skip down the hall... .and much more....I thank all who have touched my heart, especially the children. At the end of the day, they are the only ones who count. They make it all worthwhile.
I want to thank Fr. Peter who is a visionary leader of our parish and school who supports us well beyond any of our expectations and to the School Board that advises and supports the school, pastor, principal and our families so SCS will be a school of excellence for many years to come. I am blessed to have a staff and faculty full of passion and love for our school and children. It goes without saying that our students are my joy and reason for being in education. I will definitely miss their hugs and smiles. Lastly, thank you to our parents for your loyal and caring support for our school. Together we are a community, a family, each of is a part of a whole, working together to be the best that we can be in preparing the children for their future.
God bless and thank you for the privilege of serving at Southtowns Catholic School.
