Hello everyone and welcome back to school. My name is Mr. Thomas Atkinson and I have recently been approved as the new Director of the Bangor Township Virtual School. I am coming to BTVS as the director after spending the last five years teaching social studies and computers in three different districts throughout the state of Michigan. Most recently, I spent the last three years as a high school social studies teacher and head football coach at Whittemore-Prescott High School. My wife Chelsea, a graduate from John Glenn, and I are excited to be moving our family into the area and starting this new journey. I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of Bangor Township Schools, and my hope is to provide this school system with a dynamic administrator who will always put the interests of their students first. The beauty of this virtual school program is that it can be whatever you or your child needs to achieve their educational goals. I look forward to meeting all of you and finding out how I can help to provide each of the students here with their best educational opportunity. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. Go Bobcats! Thomas Atkinson

Dear Virtual Bobcats, It has been my privilege to serve as the Director of the Bangor Township Virtual School for the past six years. I have been truly blessed to have had the honor of working with all of your families, some of you for many years, and many of you this year due to an unprecedented pandemic. Our program’s reputation in the community has grown to be the standard for online learning, and it is because of the commitment to excellence of our incredible BTVS families, our Mentor Teachers Mrs. Shawn Collier, Mrs. Leanne Gauthier, Mrs. Kathy Kosecki, Mrs. Amy Mika, and Mr. Nick Sharp, and all of #bobcatnation cheering us on! After thorough personal reflection, I have accepted the position of assistant principal at Christa McAuliffe Middle School. This career move directly aligns with my personal vision and mission to be the best version of myself in my career as an educator. Although I am excited to start this new chapter, I am saddened to leave my BTVS students and families. However, I have full confidence that our shared district vision and mission will ensure the Bangor Township Virtual School will continue to thrive. Over the last six years, we have built a program designed to allow students the freedom to learn what they want, when they want, and where they want while continuing to provide innovative opportunities. In the 2020-2021 school year, we have persevered together, shown true grit and resilience, celebrated incredible academic success, and had our largest senior class and highest graduation rate ever! I may be moving on, but this is the strongest BTVS has ever been thanks to your ongoing support. Thank you for the memories, for trusting BTVS as your online provider, and for the most incredible school year to end my time at #BTVS1! Go Bobcats! Jeff Albrecht
