Welcome Back!


Wow! That went by quickly! Who else was awake all night? I feel the anticipation makes it difficult to sleep, it always seems there is something that contributes to my brain noise...new school, new partner, new principal, new schedule, new students, new colleagues, a new round of bargaining, etc. I am looking forward to a good sleep tonight. I hope you are not too exhausted at the end of today and we hope you found some time to relax and recharge over the summer! We are all back in the office today and ready to answer emails and phone calls. Our team has changed a bit with Cindy retiring. Here is who is in the office and how to reach us...
