Over the past thirteen years, I have had the great opportunity of serving the students, staff, and community of the Clearwater R-1 School District.
I have enjoyed my work immensely. I have been able to wear many hats and have had the pleasure of seeing the library program develop into an integral part of the Clearwater School system with a positive impact on student achievement. It has been exciting to renovate the facility, revitalize the book collection, and bring the makerspace to life, but I feel the greatest accomplishment of an educator occurs in the lives of students. I treasure each one of you and feel as though I have done as much learning as I have teaching.
I look forward to watching your continued success and will miss you terribly as we all take on new challenges. Please accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for being a small part of your lives.
