Connie Kehoe is now an elected official in the Village of Irvington. She won the position of Village Trustee and began her marathon of meeting on April 1. Since then she has worked to get a Village Farmers Market up and running as well as to beef up a Hudson River Day festival with some re-enactment skits between Henry Hudson and a Native American woman (guess who?). Next comes Waterfront Rezoning and Streetscape Design for Main Street, all with no money for municipal governments.
After 20 exhilarating years of educational sales and consulting and 10 years in public education, I have pulled back and am taking on a coaching/mentor role to Alice King and her new team. Three delicious grandbabies and that horrible year of breast cancer have been the motivators. HOWEVER, I am still committed to this work and to the success of your schools and your students, so I continue to be available to my successors in the role of ongoing mentor and historian.
The business in NYC, Long Island and the Hudson Valley counties are now headed by Alice King, who has worked with me for more than ten years. She is also my sister-in-law and she is filled with energy, knowledge and love for you, the customers, and especially for the children we all serve.
I am confident that the new team will serve you as knowledgeably and loyally as I have. I have a thousand fond memories of my visits to your schools and I look forward to your emails, which I will answer with a personal note. I will make myself available for certain targeted projects and specialized consultative work.
