Transitions in Room #26

Good afternoon,

I am writing to first thank each of you and your families for your support throughout my years at Nowlin. I also wanted to inform you that I will be transitioning to a new role for the second semester as my new assignment will begin on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. While I am very excited for this new opportunity, I am also very sad to be leaving the Nowlin family.

Ms. Hamouda will be teaching our class. She has shadowed with me and has been working very closely with me in regards to the classroom expectations, both behavioral and academic. I am fully confident that the transition will be a successful transition for the students. Additionally, support staff has been realigned to support Ms. Hamouda. This added layer of support will also ensure success for the students.

Please help us give a warm welcome to Ms. Hamouda!!
