BITTERSWEET RETIREMENT Dear Riviera ISD Superintendent, Mrs. Patricia Thornton, School Board Members, School Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and community, I would like to take this time to thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to work at Riviera ISD for the last 31 years. During this time, I have so many fond memories with faculty, co-workers, and especially with students. I will cherish these memories forever. I would also like to thank the food service directors I have been privileged to work with and learn from. These strong, dedicated professionals, Ms. Jennifer Chapman, Ms. Lupita Guerra, and Ms. Millie Clements, were instrumental in helping me grow professionally. After 31 years I am ready for the next chapter of my life, and I will be retiring at the end of this school year. As a new grandmother, I plan to spend plenty of time in Florida with my son Arnie, his wife Jillian, and my new grandson, Jaxon Jesse. I want to also give a huge heartfelt “thank you” to all the administrators, staff, co-workers, and students that helped me during one of the most challenging times of my life. Losing Jesse Sanchez was devastating for me, but with the support and love of my family and the entire school community, I was able to continue. Once again, thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Seahawk Family. My blood will run green forever. Respectfully, Ellie Jimenez
