Dear Barnard Families:
As you know, I am leaving the principalship at BA June 30th. I am not sure what the future brings (all further complicated by COVID!), but I hope that the future for my husband Niclas and I will bring travel and work in foreign lands again. With big doses of Vermont beauty in our little home in Rochester.
I feel that we accomplished much in the last three years. We shine academically, socially, and we have an incredibly wonderful staff and families. That is what the data shows–and that is what visitors see when they enter the school.. BA is an excellent school–one that rivals the excellent international schools I left and am going back to. There is much to be proud of.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you all, thank you for all the hard work done for our students.
Farewell to the kids, farewell to the parents, and farewell to the teachers. I wish you all the very best. Most of all, I hope the kids keep visiting the nature trail, slide down the hills, and play in the brook and gardens. Such a gift no one should ever take for granted.
It is a strange way to end my time here—the emergency remote learning and the restrictions due to COVID. If you see the little red car in the parking lot, stop and ring the bell. I will come out and say Aloha.
