He is hoping she will decide to join the North Scott district so he can have his entire family with him on this new venture, but because the offer came on such short notice, he understands her desire to stay.
“We never anticipated moving until after she graduated but positions like North Scott don’t open up everyday,” Stutting said. “If she were to chose to stay up here my wife will stay here as well and I will just move to Eldridge by myself. If she chooses North Scott then we’ll have to find a house as quickly as possible. Hopefully that decision will come soon.”
Stutting’s first official day with the North Scott Community School District is July, 1 and he is hoping by then he and his family will have settled in comfortably into their new home in Eldridge.
By then he also expects to have established some relationships with people of the community and district.
“One of the things North Scott said they were looking for was someone who was active in the community,” Stutting said. “That’s part of the job and part of who I am. In a district of 3,000 students you have to make that effort to get out. It’s a challenge and, it’s a challenge that I’m looking forward to.”
