With great excitement, I would like to share the happy news that Coach Cain and I are expecting our first child in February of this year! Consequently, I anticipate taking maternity leave from mid-February through the end of the school year. I will greatly miss each one of my students while I am away, but I know they will continue to have a positive classroom experience under the guidance of my long-term substitute.
In my absence, Mr. Austin Wilcox will be facilitating the Digital Media class. A graduate of Mount Vernon himself, Mr. Wilcox joined our faculty/staff this year in the IT department. He has been a tremendous asset on campus, and is already a familiar face amongst seventh and eighth grade students and teachers from his regular office hours during Advisory. Mr. Wilcox and I are currently co-teaching Digital Media to ensure a smooth transition when I am on leave.
