Tonight the All-American Public School's Board voted in favor of our superintendent's recommendation that I be named to fill the position of Assistant Superintendent. The interview process and offer came at the end of June, but nothing is solidified until the Board's vote. I am happy and ready to get started in my new position, which will happen next month.
Leaving All-American High is very bittersweet. I have good friends there, and I love the administrative team I have worked with for the last seven years. I'll miss the day-to-day interaction with the students as well. But I am very excited about the opportunity to focus solely on curriculum and our school improvement process. These areas reflect my true career interests, and I am both challenged and humbled by the opportunity to affect students across the district.
Wish me luck as I finish my commitments at the high school and make the move "across the street." It's going to be a whirlwind for me between now and the beginning of school in August.
