Many of you friends already suspect I’m crazy. And, once again, I’ve just made a BIG commitment that will confirm your suspicions. After 38 years in education and three retirements already behind me, I’ve decided to step back into the arena one more time. But, this time, it’s for a rare opportunity that I’m VERY excited about! I have been named Interim Principal (a one year commitment) of Palmetto Scholars Academy in Charleston … South Carolina’s first pubic charter school for Gifted and Talented youth. Because my granddaughter, Emma, is a student there, I am acutely aware of the extraordinary “out of the box” teaching and learning opportunities the school provides for its students … and its teachers, who are driven in their devotion to this traditionally underserved student population. I start tomorrow, and I’m pumped! And, although Randy will still be teaching in Savannah, it’s only a short train ride away from Charleston.
Sorry, TrainGranny fans and blog followers. I won’t forget you. I’ll be back in about a year to resume my travels.
