I came to Albemarle County eight years ago to work with Dr. Pam Moran and eventually uprooted my family from Michigan to be here full time. Her vision, courage, and integrity allowed us to combine with brilliant educators and one of the world’s greatest technology teams to build a school system that many consider the best in the nation.

But regimes change, and new leaders have new priorities and beliefs. My beliefs require certain actions, and thus it is with profound sadness that I have to leave the Albemarle County Public Schools. I will miss my colleagues immensely, I will miss our children more than I can possibly say.
