As many of you know, this is the last Newsleer that I will be working on for the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department (CSD). My new role as Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs at Molloy College will not allow me the opportunity to continue in a full time faculty position in CSD. While I am excited about the challenges I face in my new position, I am very sad to leave my daily interactions with friends, colleagues, and students in CSD. It has been a long, fruitful, and enjoyable career in this program. I have had the pleasure of teaching more than 14 different courses, sharing my experiences with numerous faculty and staff, while watching the growth of hundreds of students. When I think about the cold Friday in January of 1988 that I was hired to begin teaching 3 classes on the following Monday, the years of development, the times of frustration, joy, and celebration that I have shared with so many of you, I am truly amazed. I am grateful for all of the wonderful experiences I have had and the people I have met. A heartfelt thank you to everyone for contributing to a memorable and satisfying career!
