 I wrote this newsletter with much joy and some sadness.  I have had a wonderful three years here at Botha School.  I have so many people to thank for all the support throughout the years.  The staff, students and parents have been amazing and I will truly miss all of you. There are many changes happening at Botha School next year, and I know that these will be embraced and the support will be given when needed.

Again, I say thank you to my amazing staff, fantastic students and parents that are the most supportive and helpful.  

Retirement is a big decision and change.  I am leaving Botha School with many wonderful memories as well as knowing that it will continue to be the BEST little school around. 

Have an amazing summer and hopefully I will see you all again.
