Farewell, Beth

As you’ve heard by now, Beth Mastro — trainer and TA provider extraordinaire — will not be returning to ACT for Youth. Beth, we will miss you so much! You make everything more fun. You took on tough projects. You are a true collaborator with a wise voice. And then there’s karaoke…

Please stay in touch!

  1. I’ve been with CAPP since its start back in 2011. I can’t remember exactly when I met Beth for the first time, but I can tell you that once you meet her, you will not forget her (in the best way possible)! Anytime I saw a training that was going to be facilitated by Beth, or even if she was just going to be there as a participant, I knew it was going to be a blast!

    I will miss having Beth’s humor and overall positive outlook in future events. Wherever her next adventure takes her, I know she will continue to make smiles happen!

    Thank you, Beth!

  2. Beth,
    I’m sorry to see you leave us. You were always a strong support for our rural communities. Best of luck to you and hope our paths cross again.

    1. Thank you, Jan. Living in Sullivan County, I have a soft spot for rural! πŸ™‚ I hope we cross paths again too. Continued success to you.

  3. Oh, no! I’m so saddened to hear about this change happening at ACT for Youth. Beth, you were always a bright light during those long, early CAPP trainings. Your unique ability to combine humor with learning makes you one of the best facilitators I have ever encountered. I wish you the best in your journey forward.

  4. Beth,
    I consider it a treat to have been trained by you on not only one occasion, but two. Your positive energy is contagious and it was always evident that you truly enjoyed what you did. I wish you nothing but the best on your journey ahead. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Raven! I’m glad we had a chance to work together. I know you’ll be doing great things with your program, and I wish you continued success.

  5. BETH!!! You were always such a beacon of joy in all of your trainings. You will be so, so missed. Thank you for your years of putting up with us CAPP people πŸ™‚ Stay in touch!!!

  6. Oh Beth, it was a short time for me as a PREP Manager, but I certainly learned a lot from you.
    Thank you for your commitment, dedication, passion and patience. I wish you the very best!

  7. Dear Beth,
    It has always been a pleasure working with you, seeing you in action, and feeling the love you bring to the work at hand.
    You will surely be missed and oh so hard to replace. All best wishes to you, Caren

    1. Thank you, Caren! It has always been a great working with you too, and we do have some years together! Even though we remain 39. πŸ™‚
      I appreciate the kind words, and I wish you the best too.

  8. Beth,

    We will miss you- your wisdom, your humor, your understanding of rural communities and their schools. Best wishes.

    PS – I’m still super upset that I missed karaoke!

    1. Tina! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.
      Even though we didn’t get to hear you sing, I know you are a rock star! πŸ™‚
      Continued success.

  9. Beth,
    I can’t believe it. Trainings won’t be the same. I hope that whatever you plan on doing next you find happiness, growth, and awesome new discoveries. You will be missed, especially by those of us who have been around awhile and know just how good you really are!

    1. Thank you so much for the good wishes, Maria. I’ll miss seeing you, and I wish you the best in all your good work.

  10. Beth,
    Good luck to you on your future endeavors! I wish you all the best. It has been a pleasure working with you and attending your always humorous and fun training’s. I guess now is the best time to tell you that I have been using your ice breakers for years!!!! I let people know where I got them :). You will be missed!!

    Best,
    Andrea (NACS)

  11. You are incredible. It has been nothing less than an honor to work with you and learn from you. Thank you for being you, Beth. We love you!!!!
