It is with both sadness and excitement that I announce that I will not be returning to SHINE Preschool next school year. I have been so blessed by getting to play a part in your children’s growth and development, and I thank you for trusting us with your most precious gifts. I feel God leading me to focus more time on my family and to pursue other avenues in my personal and professional life. It has certainly been an adventure to lead this amazing group of teachers and I will be very sad to leave, but I am excited to see what God has in store for me. My last day will be the last day of school in May.
I am very pleased to announce that Melanie Garland will be replacing me as Director of SHINE Preschool. Melanie has been the Assistant Director and Lead Teacher since SHINE Preschool opened its doors almost three years ago. Melanie holds a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and has many years of experience teaching preschoolers. I am confident that I am leaving the school in the most capable of hands, and am very excited to see the growth that I know will happen under Melanie’s leadership. I am currently training Melanie for the Director position. If you have any questions or need any information about next school year, Melanie will be happy to assist you.
Thank you again for allowing me to invest in your children’s future. I have been blessed and humbled by our amazing kids and their awesome families and I will always hold dear the memories of every child that has walked through our preschool doors. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to finishing out this school year with you!
