    Incredible! And now you have me wondering about where you’re teaching right now. One of these days we need to connect in Portland or maybe with retirement . . . you’ll come to Seattle one of these days. I’m very envious of your years as a teacher librarian. It’s what I really wanted to do almost 30 years ago when I headed to graduate school, but they didn’t have a program for library science. So I’ve just always been the crazy LA teacher who adores books!

    That is amazing! 34 years in the same school is hard to picture! (Though I was on that track myself until I decided to leave after 14 years when my son was born. My timeline got re-adjusted a bit.)

  5. It adds up to gratitude… that’s great!

  6. Wow! AMAZING!!! Congrats on all you have accomplished!

  7. Wow! To be proud of, for sure.
