In a comment to the school board, Satfin said:

“Know that at the Millard Board of Education meeting tonight, you announced your retirement at the end of the 2021-22 school year. Overseeing the Millard Public School has been the most fulfilling experience of my life. One. It was very personal to have the opportunity to attend Mirrored School as a student and teach the district. It was always your children, our students. Loved to see them work towards their goals. Regardless of the outcome, it’s absolutely amazing to see them and challenge them. Thank you for the incredible partnership.

Millard is endowed with exemplary board leadership. Each member of the Millard Board is deeply interested in students and their academic progress. Working on a board of directors who cares very deeply makes this decision very difficult. The decision was particularly difficult as this community strongly supports our school. You made me # Proud2bMPS.

But now that I’ve spent 33 years as an educator, it’s time for me to leave and discover new adventures. There’s still a lot to do this year, but I wanted the board to know early and give me the maximum amount of time I needed to find a new director. “
