It is with mixed emotions that I email you today to inform you of some
personal news. My husband, Josh, and I have been offered teaching positions
in Laurens County. As many of you know, Laurens County is my home. After
much prayer and consideration, we have decided to accept the jobs and move
to Dublin. I will be resigning effective June 30 and begin my teaching
career in an elementary classroom in August.

This decision is very bitter sweet. I am excited to move closer to my
family, but am sad to leave a job and people in agricultural education that
I love. Leaving is one of the toughest choices I have ever made. The
memories I have shared with you the past seven years will forever be
cherished. Thank you for allowing me to serve you as a member of the state
staff and provide leadership opportunities for your students. I will miss
working with each of you dearly.

While my time on the state staff is ending, FFA will always be close to my
heart. I look forward to continuing to work with you in a different role.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance to you
or if you'd just like to catch up. My personal email address is
