It has been an inspiring four years for me as the Head of Elementary at AAM. Your daughters
and sons mean so much to me and it is hard to say good-bye to them. I have watched them grow
and learn and become students that exemplify our Keys to Success: Caring, Fairness, Global
Citizenship, Peacefulness, Respect, Responsibility and Trustworthiness. I am so proud of them.
I have come to know so many parents and families and I will miss greeting you in the morning and
saying goodbye in the afternoon. I wish you all the best in the years to come.
