Goodbye and the blog's continuation

by Ann Sutherland on 05/09/19

"The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things . . ." *

Next Tuesday, Anne Darr will be taking my place and I will be retiring.  I made this choice for two reasons:  (1) my health and (2) a growing fear that improvements in the district are beyond the ability of board and management.   It's time for others to try. 

Words cannot convey how much I appreciate very much the support and approval you have given me through these nine years; it was a perfect captstone to my life in education.  

I will continue to post on the blog at least through June, and possibly longer, depending on the availability of information.  

I wish you all well.  Carry on.  It matters.

I appreciate your years of service. I appreciate your courage to ask the "hard questions" of the central administration, and make them have accountability for their decisions and actions.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done for our district. In a world where teacher voices are stifled and children are not the focus, you have remained a steadfast supporter of what it really takes to create top schools: put the children first and trust the teachers. You battled the top heavy structure of FWISD and have paved the way for the fight to continue. I pray first for your health and secondly for your continuing efforts in a new role. Though I know Anne Darr is going to be amazing, we still need you! Best wishes!!!!
