Dear DHS Families,
A.A. Milne says, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” This idea has guided me since I left Fulton County Schools to come to City Schools of Decatur in 2010, when I left DHS to open Westchester in 2014, and when I left Westchester to return to DHS in 2020. I am genuinely thankful to have worked in CSD for the past 13 years!
I wanted to let you know that I have decided not to return to City Schools of Decatur for the 2023-2024 school year. However, I will work with CSD and DHS leadership over the next few weeks to ensure a smooth transition. Being a leader in City Schools of Decatur has been a great privilege and an invaluable learning experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity.
