Being A Boss
Being a great boss is like being a true leader.
She has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and takes the time to listen to the needs of others.
You have been the type of boss to me.
As my boss, you also became my leader and friend by the quality of your actions and the integrity of your intent.
Thank You for your leadership, strength, and kindness.

Yesterday I was feeling a little downhearted about many things in my life, one being my role as an educator. After the staff meeting and the board meeting last night, I felt that someone really cares about what I am doing at Timmonsville High School. I needed that recognition yesterday. Thank You and I appreciate you. May God continue to give you divine intervention for our District. Again Thank You and have a blessed day.
In Jesus Christ, Tammy Williams

I sincerely appreciate everything you’re done!
Yours truly, Steven Wilson
