I come to you with a heavy heart today. The last few weeks have been the most challenging of my career and life. After much soul-searching, prayer, and deliberation, I have decided to leave my teaching position at McCool. Unfortunately, I've learned far too much about politics and some of the downsides of teaching in a very small community/school over the recent weeks. This decision comes with mixed emotions. I'm planning to stay home with my youngest daughter and that is exciting. On the other hand, I will really miss the students and being in the classroom. I'm going to pursue other passions such as writing and photography. Please keep my family in your prayers as we make this transition in our lives. I will remain active in the Writing Project network and I look forward to continuing to hear from all of you.
I'm traveling to Washington DC in two weeks with a small group. I'm so excited to visit the USHMM for the first time.
I wish everyone continued success!
