A big thanks to all the techy help from Kim this year. From putting together the back-to-school video at the beginning of the year, to organizing useful resources for our digital meetings, to helping me personally with ideas for creative tech uses, Kim has been soooo great! Thank you, Digital Kim!

Thanks to my fellow Encore and PE teachers for making me laugh (or at least smile) every day! I love being able to work with such supportive, witty, and talented people.
