Dear KES Families,
Many years ago, when I first became an administrator, a friend was kind enough to give me a book called, Servant Leadership. In it, the author, Robert K. Greenleaf, describes an approach to leadership that emphasizes service to the constituencies with whom you have the privilege of working. It is a philosophy that I have followed throughout my career, which now has spanned forty six years.
That being said, it has truly been a pleasure, honor and a privilege to serve the KES community for the past eight years. I have been fortunate to work and live in such a caring and generous community. It has been an amazing experience that I will always remember and cherish.
In the near future, Andrew Selesnick, our School Superintendent, will recommend to our Board of Education that they accept my letter of retirement, effective September 1st, 2017. Of course, I wanted you to be the first to know. I’ve waited until the summer because I didn’t want to do anything to detract or take away from the wonderful spirit that is a part of the end of every school year.
My plan is to be here at KES for a good part of the summer working with Cristy Harris to get everything ready for the opening of what I know will be another great year here at KES. I leave you in the capable and caring hands of Cristy, our teachers and staff!
