All of you - the students, the parents, our volunteers, our education/government/nonprofit partners throughout the town - have been such a joy to work with over these past six and a half years. I have seen the best of what youth in this community are capable of, not just in terms of media literacy or television production, but in teamwork, good will, kindness, creativity, and determination.
My last week as BATV's Youth Coordinator will be next week, from Monday March 3rd through Friday March 7th. I will be starting a new job down in Foxboro, furthering an education department's e-learning operation.
This week I began informing the weekly video clubs and Enrichment groups of my decision, and it wasn't any easier than I anticipated. Yet, this is the right decision for me, and I am confident that students at BATV will continue to find in our facility and staff a welcoming and encouraging environment.
Good luck to you all, and best wishes.
