As is the case every year, the MAK community says goodbye to familiar faces and hello to new ones.
Ms. Carly Cherry
Ms. Cherry will finish her first year at MAK and head back to the United States. Ms. Cherry took on a big challenge for her first year of teaching, teaching overseas at a rigorous international school. More than that she taught quite a variety of courses: biology, chemistry, Bible, Foundations of Algebra, and a photography elective – and was an assistant coach for soccer! We are thankful she came and wish her the best as she continues her teaching career.
Cherry 老師將在她第一年結束後回美國。Cherry 老師在她的第一年接受了一項大挑戰，遠渡重洋到嚴格的國際學校教書。除此之外，她教了許多不同的課：生物、物理、聖經、基礎代數和攝影，甚至還擔任足球隊的助理教練。我們很感謝她來 MAK，並祝福她在未來教書生涯一切順利。
Mrs. Martha D’Brass and Mr. Peter D’Brass
Mr. and Mrs. D’Brass headed back to Texas this April to be near family as Mr. D’Brass continues his treatment for cancer. Much has been said about Mrs. D’Brass already: she has been a wonderful teacher, colleague, and friend. After four years at MAK, Mrs. D’Brass was able to have a wonderful impact on many of our current elementary students. Mr. D’Brass taught at MAK for one year before becoming Morrison’s Learning Needs Diagnostician. Conducting hours and hours of testing behind the scenes, Mr. D’Brass was able to help lots of Morrison kids and families during his years on the job.

Mrs. West just finished her fourth year at MAK, teaching third grade and serving as our Elementary Team Leader. Mrs. West will not be leaving the MAK community, but she is taking a break from teaching so that she can care for the West’s newborn daughter. Mrs. West is full of passion, creativity, and commitment to making MAK the best school it can be. We are glad her departure from our staff is not permanent, and we’re looking forward to the day she’s back on staff.

Ms. Brabon has been at MAK for six years and leaves quite a legacy. Ms. Brabon came just as MAK’s high school was starting, and she has been instrumental in developing our Spanish and Bible programs. Not only that, but Ms. Brabon has played a major role in student life, beginning and carrying out our school’s House Program and serving as our highschool’s Impact Program Coordinator. Ms. Brabon is and always has been brimming with great ideas, and she is part of MAK high school’s DNA. We are so sad to see her go!
