AASD Special Update 1-07-2019

  • As you may have learned over the holidays, we lost a valued and dedicated colleague.  Dr. Allen Teng, the principal of Mann Middle School, passed away on Saturday, December 29.  Dr. Teng is survived by his wife, Chellyn and their two children (an elementary age daughter and a middle school age son).  Mrs. Teng has asked that we respect their privacy at this difficult time for the family.  Please keep the Teng family in your thoughts during this most difficult time.  Information regarding services and a Go Fund Me campaign to assist the Teng family are below:

    President Barack Obama attributed the following quote to James Baldwin during his speech at the Selma anniversary:
    “We are capable of bearing a great burden once we discover that the burden is reality and arrive where reality is.”
    Our strength as a school district family comes from our bonds with and commitments to each other. We must take advantage of these connections during times of tragedy and sadness. Michelle Irwin, principal of Marshall Middle, and Dr. Teng’s trusted and valued colleague, has created a GoFundMe campaign as one small way to demonstrate support for the Teng family.

    Thank you for keeping Mrs. Teng and the family in your thoughts during this difficult time.
