Once again, as with these last five  years, this  was a very challenging year.  I have now been teaching since 1972… I did retire briefly,for about five years for my health, but came back five years ago…

Now, teaching at a public school in a culturally diverse community with many of our children from poverty… With all the challenges; this being the most rewarding of my career…I have come to the realization teaching today, even with all the demands:

 If one shares the love of children and the need to teach them “all”;  Teaching today can still be such a rewarding career…
