Dear Curt and Fellow Board Members,
After much soul searching and thought I have decided to resign from my position on the Sisters School Board, effective immediately. It is with regret that I will not be finishing out my term. I feel strongly about pursuing and continuing my life long passion at the classroom level. For me, this is where I feel that I can make the most impact for students and families.
I thank you for this opportunity to work with you at the board level doing what is best for the students in our schools. It has truly been my honor to serve on the Sisters School Board.
