I wanted to write today about the people that I work with. As I have been in the profession of teaching for over 30 years, I have worked with a few people.
There are those that make coming to work feel like camp and there are those that make coming to work feel like work.
When I first started teaching, I had a wonderful aide in my classroom. Linda was more like a mother and a friend. I had just moved from Massachusetts to Maine. I didn't really know anyone and was only 21. I loved my job and it never felt like work.
I still mostly feel that way. I love the friendships I have made over the years and how they have seen me through some joyous and trying times...marriages, deaths, baby. Life and all its many gardens.
I feel blessed today to have such great people to work with.
