A Goodbye Message from Ace:
Hello Academy parents.
I am Terra Acevedo, aka Ace, and I have had the honor of serving you and the Academy's incredible students as a member of the office staff. In my time at the Academy, I have seen your students blossom and flourish both in their educational goals and their personal identities. I have been there during emotional times as support to listen, encourage and celebrate success.
As an advisor of the Gender and Sexuality Alliance, Theatre Club, and Film and Production Club, I have been blown away by the open-mindedness, passion, and wisdom that your students have demonstrated while advocating for their peers, creatively problem-solving, and mediating conflict. In many ways, your students have positively influenced me towards growth as I hope to have positively influenced them.
I would be remiss to not acknowledge that there is a cost to growth. Growing pains. And I am no exception.
I have an opportunity to advance my educational and professional goals towards the field I want to work in. It is time for me to leave my unique and colorful Academy nest to pursue my passion. My last day working at the Academy will be Friday, January 24th.
For every person that I have had the pleasure of sharing a conversation or a laugh with; thank you. For your questions, phone calls and patience; thank you. For your holiday cards and your goodbye waves from the car at after school dismissal; thank you.
The Academy is the most special place I have been fortunate enough to work at. I know that your students will be well taken care of.
I now leave you with an '80s classic:
"Don't you forget about me."
