Dear Sunderland Families and Friends,
As we near the holiday season, I wanted to take a brief moment to express some thoughts and give thanks. First and foremost, I am thankful for the entire Sunderland community for welcoming me with open arms to the Sunderland Elementary School. I am extremely grateful for the overwhelming support that I have received.
My first two months on the job have allowed me to fully understand how special this community is. The faculty and staff at SES exemplify the true definition of a professional. Their tireless work ethic is only outweighed by the deep compassion and love they have for our students. I am thankful for the dedication, flexibility, and energy they bring to work on a daily basis.
I am also thankful for all of the students at SES. These young learners are outstanding students who represent their school and community very well. The children at SES bring an exceptional amount of energy with them to the classroom, as they constantly strive to improve in all aspects of their education.
Finally, I am thankful for the amount of love and support I have received from my wife, Jess. Not only is she my biggest fan, but she constantly helps me improve in all areas of my life.
Have a relaxing Thanksgiving.
