You may have noticed an absence in the Centaurus community, specifically, in the office. That would be because last week, Karen Melin stepped down from her post as secretary to Dr. Rhonda Haniford and has moved on to be a preschool paraeducator at Ryan Elementary. Melin has been working at Centaurus for 16 years starting off as a volunteer, then working in the health room, essentially moving up the ranks until working directly under Dr. Haniford.

While Melin loves this school very much, she is ready to move on. “[I feel] scared to death, excited, guilty for leaving Centaurus; Centaurus holds a place in my heart, but I’m excited to try something new.” Don’t worry though, you’ll be sure to see Melin again whether it be when she randomly stops by for a quick hello or at the BVSD basketball tournament that she and her husband always help with.

Her reasons for moving on are understandable. “I love little kids. I love all kids but I love little kids. It’s gotten to the point in my life where I’m not getting any younger and if this is something I want to do, now is the time.” Melin is chasing after a dream and proving that it’s never too late to change paths.  “I also have grandchildren and with this new job I’ll get summer breaks, as well as winter and spring breaks, to spend with them,” said Melin. There’s beauty in her intentions as well as the message of moving on and following her dream. Melin exemplifies how we all should embrace change, do what we would like to do, and make time for those we love in our life.
