In the event that you haven’t heard by now, I have good news about my teaching career for next year. I have accepted and signed my contract to be the newest member of the Fort Atkinson High School Art Program. I’ll be teaching Art Foundations, Painting, Advanced Painting, Computer Graphics and Photography, Advanced Computer Graphics and Photography, and every other year an AP Art History course.
When I learned that I was receiving a non-renewal from WUHS, after 19 years of “Living my job”, I knew that things would never be the same. I have gained so much from all of my students and parents, friends and colleagues, teachers and staff, and community of Waterford – the community (and high school) I grew up in. The love and support you have given (and continue to give to me) makes me know that for all you have given me, I have given you back.
Thank you to the kids I have grown to admire, care for, and love. There are only a few kids in my life that mean more to me than you all and you will not be forgotten as I move into the next phase of my professional teaching career. My daughter Abby put is best to describe how much you all mean to me when she spoke at the final board meeting I attended to read my last statement and pass on them all of your support. Abby said that she knew how much you all meant to me because there was seldom a day I didn’t come home and talk about something great or new that one of you had done.Thank you Julie and Abby for all your continued support and love – this journey would have been so much harder without your love and support.”Ok? Ok. What’s Next?”Fort Atkinson High School!
