Many things have been and are changing as we transition into the new semester and find our groove with our new hybrid schedule. One of these many changes includes the arrival of our new JROTC Instructor, Master Sergeant Michael Walsh, who is expected to begin teaching early next week. As one door opens, we bid farewell to one of the most selfless teachers around, Ms. Christine Durall.
This is the third time that Ms. Durall has served as a long-term substitute teacher for our JROTC program. “Her love for the program and the cadets is unmatched,” states retired First Sergeant Siler, who works with the JROTC. “She has a heart of gold and the relationships she has built with our students will last a lifetime.”
Ms. Durall has worked tirelessly to improve the education experience for each of our cadets, while simultaneously working to improve our JROTC classrooms -- from organizing our new textbooks to painting, her impact will remain with us for years to come.
“To witness the renovation of the JROTC room, which once served as an art room for the school, has been absolutely amazing,” beams Sergeant Siler. Ms. Durall is a retired art teacher and her daughters graduated from North Bullitt, and we can see her love for art and our school in that renovated room.
“Ms. Durall has taught us all the importance of care and passion for our students,” Sergeant Siler adds. “Thank you is never enough.”
We will miss you, Ms. Durall!
