Old and New
This week we say goodbye to a beloved principal, David Elliott, and also welcome our new interim principal, Amy Jessee. Though I am new to the QAE, I know David Elliott changed lives -- he founded this incredible school with a powerful vision. We are all here because of David. He created the environment where both students and teachers felt comfortable to learn and find community and happiness.
David's leave of absence and ultimate resignation hit us hard. All teachers, staff and parents have the same information about his departure, which is leaving many of us unsettled. Please know that I am here for you and that my main duty is to take care of your students and their well being and learning. David is a great man and principal--we could never replace him.
We are lucky to have our new interim principal, Amy Jessee. She is a kind, highly capable, and gracious visitor joining us from Coe. She understands the vision and mission that Mr. Elliott created to teach the whole child.
As a way to welcome Ms. Jessee to our school your students wrote welcoming cards to her. Inside each card, they wrote things they love and cherish about QAE in order to help Ms. Jessee feel more at home and get to know the loving community she is entering, if only for a short time.
Let me know if there's anything I can do for you, and I can't thank you enough for your support during this tumultuous time.
