As the 2011-2012 school year comes to a close, teachers prepare to leave FHN to pursue other opportunities.
“I feel like this has been a year that I have been able to work with a lot of different types of students, so it’s been a great experience,” English teacher Whitney Harper said.
Some of the teachers and staff members leaving this year will transfer to other schools in the District. Math teacher Kelly Hewitt is leaving North to write curriculums for Software Technologies Inc.
“I’m very excited about it,” Hewitt said. “I’m sad I’m leaving North and the classroom, but essentially I’ll be working in a ton of classrooms, so I’ll be in a classroom one way or another.”
Principal Dr. Darlene Jones feels North will lose a great group of teachers.
“It’s because of what the teachers do every day that our kids do as well as they do, win awards and get recognition,” Dr. Jones said
