Dear Arts Educators, Administrators, & Community Partners,
I am writing this letter to inform you that I will be transitioning out of the role of Title IV-A Arts Education Specialist with the Arizona Department of Education. My last official day with the Arizona Department of Education will be Friday, May 13th, 2022. I have always believed in the power of education to open doors to new opportunities, insights into self and the world, and discovering individual passions. This belief is at the foundation of my teaching philosophy. Several years back, my husband made the difficult decision to return to school to complete his bachelor’s degree, and after many years of hard work will be graduating this May and transitioning to a position as an engineer with Honda Motor Company. As such, my family and I will be moving to Columbus, Ohio mid-May.
