Retirement Announcement – Cindy Brickley

Posted in

Cindy Brickley, our amazing kindergarten teacher, is retiring in June. In the past 26 years Cindy served our community as both a first grade teacher and Kindergarten teacher. While our community will deeply miss Cindy, we are happy for her as she moves into this next chapter of her life. 

Cindy’s unbridled enthusiasm for learning and creative approach to engaging children are two of the many gifts she brings to The Island School every day.  Cindy is also a leader among our staff, acting as one of the most passionate voices reminding us that every decision we make is centered on fostering a community where kids love to learn. She has informally mentored many with her wisdom and expertise.

It is impossible to fully describe the positive impact Cindy has made in her tenure here at The Island School. While we are confident that we will hire an outstanding new kindergarten teacher, no one can replace Cindy. Those of us who know her best feel lucky, and we are eager to honor her career dedicated to our community. We will celebrate Cindy before her official retirement in June. Details will be forthcoming this spring.
