One should always leave when they hate to go; Longtime NCSD Trustee ready to fly fish

(Natrona County, Wyo.) - Natrona County School District has lost a key piece to the puzzle this week as twelve year NCSD Trustee, Elizabeth Horsch, announced her resignation this week. Trustee Horsch was first elected in 2004 and has served continuously since that time. According to NCSD, she is known for her passion to do the “right things for kids.” We caught up with Elizabeth who is enjoying some family time with her husband and has hopes of doing more fly fishing, "The main thing, it has always been about the education, individually and collectively as a community. I have spent an awful amount of time in classrooms in Natrona County and it has been easy, most of the time, because of the great students and staff." She continued to comment that she has spend thirty years in the classrooms of Natrona County as an educator and as a trustee and she will always miss it. "It is exhilarating to watch students learn. My dad told me one time that you should always leave when you hate to go and that is how I feel. I am leaving at a great time where our board is strong and united. We have a great school district and remarkable students." Elizabeth continued to report that she is proud to have taught approximately 3,500 students at Kelly Walsh High School. Her work on the board has led to many projects including: - Providing in-house nurses to most elementary schools. - Paying teachers for professional services at a professional rate. - Support of innovative programs mostly driven by teachers. - Providing collaboration time for elementary teachers. - Working on making assessment more about the service of instruction more than a measure of school performance a commitment to celebrating academic achievement as exemplified in the Academic Awards dinner. We wish you the best Trustee Horsch and thank you for your service to Natrona County and to Wyoming! ​ Photos: h/t Natrona County School District/Pitchengine Communities #oilcity #news
