Suzanne Evans Retirement

Suzanne Evans Retirement

Assistant Principal Suzanne Evans has served our school for an incredible 24 years. Her current position as assistant principal covers everything from working with students and staff to overseeing AP testing and credit transfers. Evans has worked for 14 years in her current position and 10 years as the resource teacher for the gifted before that. 


Previous to her time at Yorktown, she spent a few years working at inner city schools and taught math at Washington and Liberty. Yorktown couldn’t be more grateful she ended up here!


After all the years spent at Yorktown, Evans’ passion for her job is still apparent.  She has most enjoyed her time working with Life Skills students, and watching the seniors graduate.


“My favorite moments have been seeing students graduate that people thought might not, and being a part of that. It’s what keeps me going,” Evans said.


One of Evans’ biggest takeaways from her time at Yorktown reflects the compassion she brings to her profession and is a true testament to her character.


“It’s important to realize that everybody is going through something, and the most important thing is to be kind,” Evans said.  


Through that kindness, Evans has been able to build lasting relationships with both students and teachers. When asked what she will miss the most, those relationships are at the top of her list.


“I’ll miss the people, the students and staff. I won’t miss the very long days, but I will definitely miss the community,” Evans said.


After over a decade of fast paced work as an assistant principal, Evans is ready for some well deserved rest. She has a few vacations planned for the fall and is preparing to move to be closer to her parents.


Yorktown won’t feel the same without Evan’s warm presence, but we are excited for her to embark on this new chapter. Her dedication to our school and students has had a recognizable impact and we are incredibly grateful for all her work. Thank you Ms. Evans!
