From my recent announcement on Facebook about my new position, with thanks

Scott Merrick That's done. Resigned from USN, accepted the new MNPS "Virtual Learning Curriculum Specialist" position, paperwork at Metro tomorrow. Change is in the air. I largely owe my PLN and all my colleagues for this exciting new opportunity to build a virtual school like no other. On we go.

    • Scott Merrick Michelle I have to say that the hardest factor in the decision was losing the chance to be with "my" children. It still is, and is likely to remain so. Tell Elise I'll be helping to make Nashville a better place by helping other kids to better learning. I know that won't make up for my absence :) but it may help. And tell her to "Be Good and Have Fun."
