This year we also say goodbye to two teachers who will be taking a break from SYC. Julie Ballinger, who has taught at SYC for 12 years, will be taking classes at OSU full-time next year as she pursues her degree in occupational therapy. Denise Jacobs, who has been a teacher with us for 13 years, will be taking a hiatus to care for herself. Both Julie and Denise may come back to SYC in the near or distant future, as helpers, subs or classrooms teachers. Until then, we know that SYC will always be with them, in their hearts, as they will be with us.
