I have this poster hanging in my office – I actually made alongside my Multimedia students a few years ago. It reads “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams – Live the life you have imagined” ~Thoreau.
Well I never imagined that I would be announcing that I am leaving La Salle Catholic College Preparatory.
I have accepted a position with Beaverton School District at Sunset High School as their new Library Instructional Technology Teacher. Sunset is one of 15 schools in the district designated as a “Future Ready School”. The plan is to move towards a 1:1 environment and make sure all students are college and career ready. Along with library assistants, I will work directly with faculty to help them use information literacy and technology to impact student learning.
My last five years at La Salle Prep have been some of the most rewarding of my professional career. I have grown so much both personally and professionally working with the dedicated staff and want to thank La Salle Prep for their incredible support during this process.
Sunset Principal John Huelskamp (formerly of de La Salle North) told me that a wise man named Tom Dudley (former La Salle Principal) once told him that you can be a Lasallian educator anywhere. So I will proudly display “Let Us Remember …” on doorway of my office and think “… that we are in the presence of God” every time I walk through the halls of Sunset High School.
