My, how time flies!  We began the year with several stories by many of you.  As we approach the last week of school, I would like to share my story.  During my senior year at Concordia University, I student taught at St. Michael.  After graduation I got married and moved to Baltimore, Maryland where I taught 4th grade for five years and 5th grade for two years, after which we moved back to Michigan because my husband took a job in Ann Arbor.  Long story short, I talked him into moving near St. Michael and making the commute because I wanted my family to be a part of the Christ-centered family unit that I felt when I was student teaching at St. Michael. I was not disappointed!  My children received a strong education at St. Michael and went on to take the highest academic classes in high school and college.  Spiritually, they received a firm foundation, rooted in Christ which continues to guide many of their decisions and relationships in life.  At St. Michael they learned to be servant leaders in the world.  This is evident in their involvement in community as well as in the church.  I am forever thankful to all the caring teachers at St. Michael for preparing my children, not only academically, but also for life.  I am so thankful to St. Michael for providing a place where future parents and leaders are taught about Jesus and of God's love for us.  I am thankful to God for the Christian teachers and Pastors who have helped shape my children.

Now, as principal, thank YOU for allowing us to help shape YOUR children!
Blessings on your week!
