As you may or may not know by now, I have committed to stay on as Principal of Shorewood High School on a permanent basis, and will not be returning to Atwater next school year.
It was a very difficult decision for me to leave Atwater and return to SHS, where I began my teaching and administrative career. However, I am looking forward to seeing all of the current Atwater families arrive at the high school within a few short years as students begin the next chapter of the educational careers.
Interim Principal Kayla Russick has handled Atwater exceptionally well this year. Moving forward, the District will be reposting the principal position so that any interested individuals, including Ms. Russick, may apply. Members of the interview committee formed last summer will also reconvene to interview and recommend candidates. I am confident in their ability to find a qualified principal to lead Atwater. Please be sure to check the District website, blog as well as school and District newsletters throughout the coming months for updates on the hiring process.
Thank you all for allowing me to serve as the Atwater principal throughout the past few years, and I look forward to seeing you at the high school and around the District.
