July 2, 2018 Dear students and families of Andrew Community School, Please accept this letter as my regretful resignation from my position as a school counselor at Andrew Community School. My husband has accepted a position in Green Bay, Wisconsin that will further his growth in his career. This is a move that will also put us closer to our family and take us back to our home state. We are very excited for this opportunity, but sad to say goodbye to the home we have made in Iowa. I cannot thank you enough for the joy your children have given me in my time at Andrew Community School. The past 9 years at Andrew have been an experience that I will take with me forever. I don’t think I will ever find another place as special as Andrew is! Thank you for the opportunity to teach and work with your children, and I do hope you will stay in touch (you can email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org). I am excited to learn about all the amazing things your children will do in the future! I hope you have a great rest of your summer! Sincerely, Mrs. Wagner
