Effective immediately, I am resigning as ADTA President. I have done my best to lead this organization but the pressures of raising 5 young children coupled with an ailing father has taken its toll. The commitment needed to serve as president outweighs what I am currently able to give. I want to thank all of you for your support. This job is not easy. I can honestly say that I did what I could for the advancement of all teachers. We did not always agree, but I would like to believe that in our differences I was able to listen and reach a more complete understanding. I have learned so much about myself and of people and for this I am truly grateful. I will miss my role but I leave happy and inspired.
