Joan & Terry, your commitment, results orientation and ability to integrate multiple perspectives & competing agendas is exemplary of public service at its best. You two have done an amazing job and have left a clear and lasting legacy. Thank you!!!

What a joy it was to work with both Terry and Joan! I'm so proud of the work they did. Terry is absolutely the most strategic mind I've ever met and is constantly agitating about improvement, inclusion and children. Joan has a quiet passion that pulls people in and keeps them involved and caring about so many programs. Not only the immersion program, but a little known breakfast series that keeps heads of police, fire, city, after school programs and the schools in a constant conversation about the children of our community. Kudos to you both for your service for the whole community, but most for our children! Proud to be a friend to you both!
