Honoring Decades of Service

Yesterday, in All-School Meeting, we took the time to publicly recognize those faculty and staff who have served our school for a combined 45 years.
 
Julie Salit, Associate Head of School for Faculty and School Affairs said, “Our faculty and staff are the heart and soul of our school. They hold the history and traditions and provide innovation and creativity for what is to come. They keep us accountable to each other with their high standards for our community norms so that we can each continue to learn and grow in a safe learning/living community. We are grateful for the time and effort our three honorees have given to make the Tabor experience better day to day, year to year.”
 
Three individuals were called to the stage to be recognized individually and presented with a personal gift. The first was Ms. Kate Seim, a kind and caring nurse who has provided 10 years of service toward the health and wellness of our students. Her smile lights up the Health Center and sets students at ease as she nurtures them back to health and to the fullness of all their life at Tabor offers.
 
Ms. Jennifer Albright, a marine science teacher, has provided 10 years of innovative teaching to our students. Albright has created new and fun ways to explore our ocean home from monitoring eelgrass beds on paddleboards to teaching us about aquaculture by spawning and growing oysters to helping students craft and maintain aquaponic and hydroponic systems. Her contribution to the growth of our Marine Science programs is impressive.
 
Finally, John Heavey, an English teacher, was recognized by his colleague and friend Lauren Boucher. Heavey approached the stage and took a seat in his new Tabor chair, given in recognition of his 25 years of service to Tabor, many as the English Department Chair. 

Boucher highlighted Heavey’s community role as the director of over 13 musicals and dozens of Black Box plays, as well as his excellence as a mentor to students and colleagues alike. His calm demeanor and great listening skills make him a sought-after confidant and friend. He has impacted many students and manages to keep up his connections with a great many of them even to this day. Boucher's account of Heavey’s many contributions can be read in this touching blog post.
 
Julie Salit closed the gathering by encouraging the students to get to know these teachers and others they don’t normally interact with. “We have some incredible faculty and staff who love Tabor and give so much of their lives to making it the best school for you. Take the time to get to know their stories. And please thank them for their service.”
