Not Goodbye But See You Soon!

During my tenure in education, I found myself with some of the most dedicated and self-sacrificing educators. These are the Rock Stars, the people who live this work, who breathe it, who take home lost battles and get up every day to battle again. One such person is our school counselor, Steve Pierce.

In parent meetings, he supports all stakeholders; he is straightforward with parents, he is relentless with the students, and he is collaborative with the teachers.

I am proud to say that he was a part of the Armstrong community. Mr. Pierce will be starting his new adventure with Truman High School where he will be able to support many high school students with their education.
