|The excitement of winning a door prize at the 2011 TAM Conference was almost overwhelming!|
This is by no means a good-bye from me - I plan to continue my relationship with Marble Springs - it is simply the end of a season of my life. We will begin homeschooling our daughter in the fall & I feel that my focus, time & energy is now best spent on preparing and implementing her education.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Executive Director, Anna Chappelle, for allowing me to use this medium to say goodbye. She is an excellent director & I know that Marble Springs will continue to thrive under her capable leadership. I would also like to express my gratitude to John Gammon for being such a wonderful co-worker &, more importantly, such a great friend. I will miss seeing you & your family on a regular basis. I would like to thank Dr. Michael Toomey for always being such a strong supporter of my professional endeavors - your support has meant more to me than I can adequately express. And, finally, I would like to say Thank You to Ethiel Garlington & all of the board members of the Governor John Sevier Memorial Association - thank you for all the opportunities you afforded me during my tenure at Marble Springs. It is because of your support & encouragement I have grown more professionally than I could ever have expected.
My last day on site will be Sunday, April 1st. In the meantime, there is a lot to be done - a lot of loose ends to tie up, so let's get to work!
