Today is the last day I get to work with the Canyons School District Ed Tech team in the “Launch Pad”. This is a place that over the last year and a half I’ve learned so much about instructional technology, made friends, laughed until I cried, and got a lot of really good work done with really good people.
It’s hard to leave. Life is hard. Well, it’s hard if you’re doing it right. The challenges we face appear unsurmountable sometimes, but when you’re surrounded by good people and friends it seems much easier.
EdTechs, you all know moving to Utah has been a big change for my family and I. We’re still going through changes. It’s hard. Coming to work with you has made it almost manageable. There’s no way I can ever thank each of you for all that you’ve done.
I will miss the meetings, emails, messages about Sage, projects that just keep getting bigger, classes, workshops, everything. I will miss the Sunday runs in Emigration Canyon, trips to the climbing gym, random hikes in the mountains, skiing, all of it.
Although we won’t work together at CSD after this week, I look forward to UEN events, C-Forum, UCET, any excuse to spend time with you in the future. Thank you for everything. I don’t know how else to say it without triggering an avalanche of emotions.
