As I prepare to begin my 34th year of teaching tomorrow, I’m filled with wonder and gratitude for our amazing adventure. You’ve given me such a precious gift – a space to grow and change. You’ll be in my heart and mind and classroom for as long as I continue to work. Thank you for what was, and for all that is yet to be.
