Goodbye from Mrs. Metzler
The best part about my job is working with Arcadia students and their families. Every year around graduation, I have mixed emotions. I'm so proud of our seniors and excited for them as they start the next chapter of their lives, but at the same time feel a sense of loss because I know how much I am going to miss them. It's bittersweet! Having said that, I have reached my own personal bittersweet moment. I am leaving Arcadia High School. I have been offered an admissions position with New Mexico State University working remotely from Phoenix that will give me the opportunity to advance my career professionally and financially. I will still visit Arcadia as a college rep and will help out in the College and Career center when I can. My last day will be this Nov 16th. I'm thankful for the past three years I've had working at Arcadia!
