In December of 2008, my family and I were offered a life changing opportunity to lead the middle school at Charter Day School. Over the past three years, numerous school improvement initiatives have been added to the school’s curriculum, structure, and daily schedule. I could not be more proud of the efforts of our dedicated staff members, and our diligent learners’ achievements.
Recently, my family and I were offered an additional life changing opportunity. This opportunity is a chance to work for the North Carolina Office of Charter Schools as a consultant for charter schools in the eastern region of the state. My family and I accepted this challenge and will be relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina, my last day here as director will be January 31st. The new Director will be Mr. Eric Irizarry. Mr. Irizarry has been the Assistant Headmaster of Charter Day School for the past 3 years and has worked with the middle school closely. He and I have been working side by side over the past week to ensure a smooth transition.
Being a member of the Charter Day School family has been the most rewarding and educational experience in my 12 years in education. I would like to personally thank the students, teachers, staff members, and stakeholders for their belief in our school’s vision. As I told the students this past Tuesday, that if I am at all successful in the future it will be because of my time here at Charter Day School. I wish them all the success in the world.
