Please reach out to Mr. Portzer and wish him well. He's an amazing educator and we wish him all the best and look forward to his continued friendship.
I hope you all are doing well during this crazy time. Today I received the unfortunate news that due to the levy’s failure my position is being eliminated and I will be leaving this district I’ve come to love. It is hard to find the right words to express what this last year has meant to me. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to get to know each and every one of you. Working with you all has been the highlight of my time as a band director. I’m incredibly proud of all the work we have done and I can’t wait to see where the future takes you. Thank you for welcoming me into this community. Lastly, it is impossible to truly say how grateful I am to have gotten the chance to work with Mr. Bleininger and Mrs. Markiewicz. I could not imagine better people to call colleagues or friends. They are some of the best educators and people I know. This virus has turned the world upside down but I know we will make it through stronger and more resilient than ever. This isn’t a goodbye, just see you later.
