It is with mixed emotions that we share the news that Dr. Sue Ann Bube has accepted a position as assistant principal at Renton Academy in Renton School District. Her last day is July 8. Sue Ann has been instrumental in moving the work of the Center for Change in Transition forward and is a leader across the state in secondary special education and transition services. We will miss her greatly! We also extend a big congratulations to her as she moves to Renton Academy and takes on a leadership role at the building level. We know she will continue her work with excellence! Below is message from Sue Anne:
Dear CCTS partners, ESDs, districts, and agencies,
It has been a pleasure and honor to be the director of the Center for Change in Transition Services for the past 4 years. I have enjoyed the work and remain passionate that all students with disabilities have the opportunity for positive post-school outcomes. To that end, effective this Friday, July 8th, I am stepping down as the CCTS director and have accepted a job as the Assistant Principal of Renton Academy, a place that puts research into practice for some of our most challenging students.
I have enjoyed the work of the Center immensely and will miss working with each of you in this capacity. Dr. Cinda Johnson, the principal investigator and founder of CCTS, taught me that transitions are a necessary part of growth and development. Although I will miss the Center, my heart and passion are with the students, parents, and teachers as they struggle to balance curriculum, instruction, post-school goals and transition services, within the individualized education program. I am looking forward to applying everything that I have learned from our collaborative work to improve post-school outcomes for students with disabilities.
I know that I leave CCTS in very capable hands and I trust that each of you will come to rely on the whole CCTS team as a system of support.
Thanks again for letting me be part of this work,
Dr. Sue Ann Bube
