Students,
I am very sad to be leaving Newcomer! I have enjoyed my two years here more than I ever dreamed! You have changed my life forever and I want to thank you for letting me into your lives. Next year I will be working very hard in Colorado helping schools with their Newcomer students. You are forever in my heart! ❤️
