I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have been a teacher in Cedar Springs. I wish to thank the School Boards past and present. I wish to thank the following Superintendents: Mr. McCarty, Mr. Tackmann, Mr. Elliott, Mrs. Rypma, Mr. Booth, and Mr. McDermed. I wish to thank the following principals: Mr. Nielsen, Mrs. Marvin, Ms. Abuhl, Mrs. Engblade, Mrs. Rypma, Mr. McDermed, and Mr. Duffy. I wish to thank the Cedar Springs Public School Community (support and teaching). I wish to thank the students and their parents who I was allowed to serve. I wish to thank my family, also.
I have been truly blessed to work in my district. The district I grew up in. The district I live in. The district I worship in. The district that puts our students’ education first.
Our district, with limited funding, is continually creating educational opportunities for our students that are noteworthy. Our district has a professional commitment at all levels with all staff to constantly improve. Our district sets the standard for others to follow.
This is why I am thankful to be associated with Cedar Springs Public Schools.
