Sue Hosey resigned Friday from her position as principal of Sunflower School.
Hosey had been in the position for more than three years but is leaving to explore other professional opportunities.
“I will truly miss the students at Sunflower Elementary,” Hosey said.
“Being their principal for the last three years has been a privilege, and I know I learned more from them than any knowledge they could have received from me.”
Hosey will finish the school year, with the resignation taking effect June 30.
With 24 years of experience as a principal and nine years of experience as a teacher, Hosey is uncertain what she will do next.
But she is sure she will remain in education.
“I’m not sure yet where my path will lead, but I know that being around kids is, for me, like needing oxygen,” she said.
“I will always be involved in some capacity with the education of children.”
Superintendent Rick Doll expressed gratitude for Holey’s time at Sunflower.
“We appreciate Sue’s service to Sunflower Elementary School,” he said. “She has helped the staff foster a student-focused learning environment and maximize student achievement opportunities.”
Lawrence Public Schools will soon launch a search for a new principal.
