With these quotes as a context, I want to let you know that I will be transitioning to the role of Education Director in Area 7 for the Fall.
Working with you to establish a growing and thriving learning community at Ken Taylor has been, without question, an amazing and positive journey. I often refer to our school community as ‘the jewel of the North’ because of the wonderful, collaborative, and positive parents, students, and staff that make this work so rewarding. I have so enjoyed working alongside you, getting to know you, and seeing the growth in the learning and character of our students.
I look forward to continuing our work together until the end of the school year.
In order to inform the selection of a new principal at Kenneth D. Taylor School, Area 2 Director, Darlene Unruh, would be pleased to receive input from staff, students and parents of Kenneth D.
