Letter to Shabazz Students and Parents

Dear Shabazz,

As some of you may know (some may not), I'm the school counselor here at Shabazz, but I'm also a psychotherapist and see clients on a part time basis at a local clinic. I have decided to pursue that work full time, and have put in my notice that my last day will be in January. I came to Shabazz as a student teacher with Denise 11 years ago, and had always hoped that I would return. I was fortunate enough to have that opportunity last year. In that time, I have met some phenomenal students, adults, educators, and administrators. The decision to leave was not easy, but I am excited for this new adventure.

Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of this community, and I hope to continue to support Shabazz as a parent of a current student.

2nd Quarter classes begin on November 5th! We will have our Add/Drop at the end of the first two days. You can check your current schedule in IC.
