30 years of commitment During staff development time today, recognition was given to the teachers and support staff that have been with our school district for 25, 30 and 35 years. Cookies, coffee and stories were served. (Do you see me there on the 30 year list?) These co-workers have been my friends since the 70's. Together we've been through weddings, birth of our children, graduate degrees, family crisis, budget cuts, death of parents, building a new high school, graduation of our children, etc. etc. Now, young, new teachers are filling in the spaces left, as we all look to our retirement in the next few years.
Another high-light was the package that came from Sharon at the Old Oak Swing. I was the lucky winner of her January give away. It is still winter in SD so the cozy throw and devotional book is just what I need for my weekentd 'retreat'. Visit her blog to see what she is giving away for February!
