Dear Glenbrook Families,
After 6 wonderful years at Glenbrook, and 35 years as an educator, I have made the decision to retire next month. My last day at Glenbrook will be October 16th. This is not a Covid related decision, It is an I'm turning 55 next month decision. I apologize for the awkward timing of being less than 2 months into school. The decision was not an easy one because of my deep commitment to Glenbrook, its students, its staff, and to the greater CBE community that supports our mission. My passion for teaching has not subsided, and my love for students has not subsided.
When I was appointed as Principal of Glenbrook in 2014, I was so excited. I had so many ideas and dreams for this school, and I am happy to say I have seen them to fruition. Having been here for 6 years, I have known many of the students since they were in Kindergarten and enjoyed watching them grow and learn over the years, building some very special relationships. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have served as an educator in CBE; in such a vibrant and supportive community; a community where education is valued as a top priority by students, teachers and parents alike. I am blessed to have been a colleague to such extraordinary faculty and staff, and I am humbled by the fact that parents have entrusted a portion of their child's education with me.
Please know that my dedication and commitment will continue throughout the next month, as I work with Education Director Darlene Unruh to provide a smooth transition for the incoming principal.
I want to thank you for all your encouragement, support and trust you have shown me over my years at Glenbrook. I am confident that Glenbrook will continue flourishing academic excellence for students in the years to come.
