This upcoming school year, my dream will become a reality as I start my first year of teaching. It’s strange that I won’t be able to work with this person but instead take over her position as she opens a new chapter in her life and I wish her the best of luck. Merril, I am grateful for everything you have done to help me obtain this position and start a new chapter in my life.
Thank you and everyone else who gave me advice and support along the way. I will do my best (not try, because there is no try).
