I have enjoyed my stay at WJ Keenan High School for the past six years as your media specialist/school librarian. This past school year has been challenging and difficult for us all and hopefully the future will be less hectic, less stressful and happier.

I send my prayers and well wishes to my Keenan family for continued strength and prosperity over the coming years.

To my media specialist/school librarian colleagues, I wish you well as more changes and responsibilities surface over the next school year. Don't let the DLE laptops take you out!

Relax and enjoy your summer!
