It’s almost daylight savings time! While we are happy to usher in spring and more hours of sunlight, we are sad to count down the hours before bidding adieu to our beloved MFTA Education Center Coordinator, Nat Shelness.
Nat plans to pursue a career in Education. He will be joining the NYC Teaching Fellows program, teaching eighth grade Earth Science in Brooklyn, before enrolling in a Master’s of Education program in NYC to become a full-time teacher.
Our Executive Director, Harriet Taub summed it up well: “Nat is an extraordinary young man and I am so pleased to have been a part of his early career. Over the almost two and a half years, he has continued to impress me with his drive, dedication and, smarts. He is an inspiration to me and I will miss him sorely. However, we all look forward to seeing his career blossom and hope he comes back to see us often. ” We all concur.
As we send Nat out into the world, we try to keep the words of Theodor Seuss Geisel in mind: “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened!” We look forward to Nat’s ongoing participation with MFTA’s professional development opportunities, and of course, properly filling out his worksheet on shopping days!
