After 8 years with ALA, I am retiring on June 30, 2017. Over the 38 years I've been an educator, I can honestly say that working with the administrators who have chosen to continue their learning with the Master Principal Program has been my dream job. As much as I loved being a teacher and then a principal, you have been the cherry on top of a blessed career. Thank you for all you do for the children of our great state. Know that you will continue to be in my prayers and in my heart and that I wish you all the best.
