Dear Ms. Dover,
It was with heavy hearts that we learned of your departure. For the past three years, you have had such a large impact on the Magnet community. For those of us who often found ourselves getting to school past the 8:30 bell, you were the first face we saw in the morning, smiling as we rushed into the doors. You never questioned us or commented on us not getting to school on time, and instead you chose to tell us good morning and wished us a wonderful day. You were also the last face that some of us saw at the end of the day as we came by to leave for an appointment, family trip, or college tour. No matter what the reason was, you would tell us goodbye and to drive safely.
Whether coming into school, leaving school, or simply stopping by to say hello, conversations with you were always entertaining and never failed to leave a smile on our faces. Your ability to converse with anyone in the student body is truly impressive and is something that all administrators should aim to do. Another quality we admire is your kindness. You exceeded what was required of you to ensure that all of our needs were met and tried your best to spread your happiness and positivity to all who walked through your doors. It is because of this that you developed a connection with many of us and became one of our favorite members of the AMHS staff, as we could tell you are someone who truly cared about each and every student.
As a final goodbye, some of us would like to share our most memorable moments or favorite things about you:
