Exit Interviews : Ms Grant

It is the end of the school year which means that we will soon have to say goodbye to a few of our favorite teachers. This year, 5 middle school teachers are leaving or moving out of the middle school. Over the final weeks of school, The Direct Message will post an ‘Exit Interview’ that we conducted with each of these educators.

How many years you have been at AES and what were those years:

I have been at AES for one year which was this year.

What will you miss most about AES?

I will miss many things about AES! I will miss greeting students each morning, I will miss the excitement and achievements around each of the ASIAC events, I will miss my amazing and talented colleagues, and I will miss the regular 'changing of the flowers' on campus.

What is the best part about being a teacher at AES?

The best part about being a counselor at AES has been getting to have 1 on 1 time with students. I also loved being able to visit all classes and see students excelling in different areas.

What are your plans for next year and what are your thoughts about this next step?

My plans for next year are to go back to retirement where I spend 6 months in British Columbia, Canada and 6 months in Arizona, United States.

How do you hope your students and colleagues will remember you?

I hope to be remembered as someone who really cared about individuals.

What message would you like to leave for the community at AES?

My message for the AES community is 'Be Kind'!
