It's been an honor to serve as your superintendent - Sept. 15, 2021
Dear SAISD Family:
This morning, Chicago Public Schools will announce me as their new CEO, and I want you to hear it from me. It was not an easy decision – I love San Antonio ISD and will always care deeply for this district and all of you. Chicago is my hometown, and today’s announcement will be made at Benito Juarez Community Academy, my high school. No place other than where I first set roots could have pulled me away from San Antonio.   
Although I’m leaving with a heavy heart, I know this district will not skip a beat in its pursuit of excellence on behalf of our children. The strongest organizations are those that are built to outlive us – to be sustainable beyond the current leadership. And SAISD clearly has the depth of talent and skill to move gracefully forward.
The Board and the staff are extremely effective at what they do, and SAISD is in a strong position for continued success. Strength runs deep throughout the district – amongst our Trustees and across campuses, classrooms, departments and advisory committees. I personally know how dedicated our Board members are to this community, to equity, and to student and family support. They are bold leaders, and under their guidance, the SAISD team has implemented nationally recognized safety practices, are executing the largest bond effort in district and city history, and have gathered the parent feedback to accomplish a thoughtful and inclusive multi-year ESSER plan.
Improving the lives of children through education has always been, and will always be, this district’s top priority. I am grateful to everyone within the SAISD family and throughout the San Antonio community for their support in embracing change – and in welcoming me. The admiration has been mutual.
My SAISD family, it has truly been an honor to serve as your superintendent.
