Library Media Specialist
It was great to hear from you! I think quite often about you, the history department, and life on South Hill. I had heard that Jason was now a principal. I was excited to hear this as I imagine he is an excellent administrator. I have met few teachers that I have respected as much as him and I am still very pleased to have been placed with him and having been spent a semester at IHS.
I am now the Library Media Specialist at Penn Yan Academy. I never pictured myself in this position, but had decided to pursue as Master's Degree in Library Studies and Information Technology as I thought that this would be helpful in better understanding the research process and information resources. Upon graduation, a job opened up in my school district so I decided to make the transition. Although I am happy with my decision, I often miss my days in the classroom. This past year I was the Offensive Coordinator for the varsity football team, here in Penn Yan.
On a more personal note, I am now married and have a 10 month old daughter, Kennedy.
Again, I appreciated hearing from you and look forward to reading about the program in the newsletter.
I just finished reading the History Department
Newsletter and wanted to say hi to you and ask that
you pass on my greetings to Pat.
I took many classes with you and Pat and was the
president of the history club during my senior year
Anyway, I am now an attorney working at a small
plaintiff-side general civil litigation law firm in
Boston. I have a 10-month old daughter and live with
my husband (another Ithaca grad) in Arlington, MA. My
husband and I actually got married 5 years ago at
Sheldrake Point Vineyard outside of Ithaca and can't
wait to bring our daughter to explore Ithaca.
I hope you are doing well.
