Dear PS 107 Families,
I am writing today to tell you that I will be retiring at the end of June.
This is a bittersweet moment for me, having made this beautiful school community my work-home for the last ten years. So many of you, your children, and our staff, have played such an important role in my daily life. But I recognize all too well how much faster time seems to pass the older I get, and know it's time for me to step back, skate more, get a dog, and begin the next chapter of my life.
I look back with great pride on my tenure as principal and am very optimistic about the future of PS107. I am certain this wonderful community will continue to thrive and, if anything, will become even stronger. Superintendent Skop knows our school well and will take great pains to place someone here best fit to serve our community. I will fully support the new principal in any way needed to ensure a smooth transition over the coming months.
It has been a great privilege to be the leader of PS107, truly one of District 15’s little gems. I will take with me so many wonderful memories of my time here, of the unique community that we have built together, and the incredible support you have shown me.
But, above all, it is your children that will be hardest for me to leave behind. I have had the unique pleasure of seeing so many of them grow up here, even over this last very strange year. There has been nothing as meaningful to me, or that has given me as much joy as helping to shape who they are and who they will become. They are truly remarkable people and I will cherish these last weeks with them.
