This afternoon our principal, Teri Poff, announced that she's departing at the end of the year, having been offered a curriculum position with the Franklin Pierce district. She expressed her regret at having to leave such an excellent school and committed staff, but also shared her excitement about the new opportunity.
It was a bit of a surprise: I know that no administrator stays forever, but since I began teaching the same year she started principaling, I had gotten quite comfortable with her leadership style and personality. It will be hard to adjust, but that's how it goes. I wish her well in her future endeavors.
Also, I totally scooped The Olympian. Again.
