Dear Parents and Students:
This is my last weekly letter home to you. The next weekly will be written from the pen of our Interim Principal, Ms. Julie Guevara. I have been working closely with Ms. Guevara on the on-boarding process during this transition period. Ms. Guevara will be an excellent leader for SJND. As parents and students, I would ask that you please give her your fullest support, as you have done for me these past three years.
Here are some final reflections as I look back on the past three years. As a man of faith, I have truly been
by these three amazing years as Principal of the SJND family.
- And so I am deeply grateful to God for entrusting me with the ministry of serving as Principal of this great Catholic school.
- I am so thankful to Father George, our Pastor, for his full support and confidence in me.
- I am so thankful to the leadership team, faculty and staff, board of trustees, and the various advisory committees for your wisdom and collaboration.
- I am grateful for the support and kindnesses of the parent and student community. All of you have touched my heart in a special way. I have enjoyed teaching my students in AP Psychology these past two years as well.
In a few short weeks, I will be traveling back home to the state of New Jersey with my family. I am a different person thanks to all of you. SJND will live in my heart forever. For three years, you have served as “my family home away from home.” I am so grateful and blessed beyond the words in this letter.
As always, thank you for your support. Go Pilots!
