A New Start Next Year
I’ve announced to the students that I won’t be returning to Highland as band director next year to pursue the challenge of raising my son. I have found it increasingly difficult to find time for my family during the last couple of years, and I’ve realized that the band students at Highland need a teacher who can devote more time to the position than I will be able to next year. It is a heartbreaking decision, as the band has provided me with so much joy over the last 3 years. I know that this is truly the best decision for both my family and for the band family, even though it hurts right now.
I am working with the administration diligently to find the best possible replacement to direct the band in what I am sure is going to be a stellar 2017-18 school year. This band community has my eternal gratitude for the amount that they have invested in me. I am looking forward to hearing the great things that the band will be playing in the future.
