Anne Cunningham has decided to resign from her role as an Art teacher at our school. She has been off on personal leave and continues to provide support for her husband; and when his situation allows, she is planning to begin training at Fanshawe College to become an ESL Instructor. She has been volunteering at the YMCA one morning a week, helping with an English program for new immigrants. She is excited about the possibility of teaching in a new environment, with a different population of students, and in a situation that will draw on her many years of teaching experience. She says she is grateful for many wonderful experiences during her time at our school.
We are truly grateful to have had her on our team. We wish Anne and her husband all the best, and we are thrilled that David M. will continue to lead our Art program full-time.
