After much thought, consideration, and family discussions, I have decided this will be my last year at West U and HISD, and I am retiring effective August 31 at the end of my contract year.
This has been a difficult decision for me and my wife. I’ve waffled back and forth for months. Earlier this week I talked to one of my daughters about this decision and she said, “This is hard for you, isn’t it?” It most definitely is. I’ve spent twenty-three years at West U; more than half of my adult life since college. It isn’t easy to walk away from a school and position that has, to a great degree, defined me.
I doubt I will get a chance to speak with each of you before I retire but please know that I deeply appreciate all the support I have received from our parents, the PTO, and our community during my tenure at this wonderful school.
Respectfully, John T. Threet, Principal
