I hope you are enjoying the holiday and are having a restful few days off from the routine of teaching. You certainly deserve it and I am sooooooo grateful for the work you do providing an outstanding arts education for all students. As I type and look out the window at the beautiful snow I realize how fortunate I am in my work to able to interact with you. As another year comes to an end I say THANK YOU! May your 2014 be filled with outstanding art, music, theatre, and dance!
