Dear Bauer Families,LOST AND FOUND
It is with great joy and sadness that I enter retirement from public education after working with energetic, uninhibited, and spontaneous children for over 36 years. The program last evening was a metaphor of my career. Hundreds of student voices coming together in one clear resounding song signified our children that come from diverse backgrounds and create one classroom and school family that takes on unique and obvious character traits.
The props and instruments our little ones showcased are like the academic, social, and emotional skills we intentionally equip each child so that they are contributing members of our school, community, and society.
As witnessed by the audience, every community has the serious, silly, shy, confident, humorous (the list goes on!) member. Watching our individual students on stage made clear the necessity of diversity of personality and talent. How blessed we are to have talents and personality as many, and unique, as our children.
Mrs. VanRijs and Mr. Bowman represented the adults that guide, prepare, and nurture us to be the very best we can be. Leaders that give us multiple opportunities to demonstrate what we are capable of, even when it means starting a song over again!
Lastly, the audience is symbolic of our village. The quote by Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has", has hung in my office for as long as I can recall. Each and every one present contributes to changing the world.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me the awesome privilege of serving at your pleasure for over three years. I will miss the students, staff, families, and friends of Bauer Elementary,
