Thanks for the memories!!

Original Post from 3/6/2015

My last day picnic party!
Many of you know that I have accepted a new job with the Great Parks of Hamilton County as their Volunteer Coordinator.  Although I am thrilled to start a new and exciting chapter in my life, it is always bittersweet saying good-bye.
I cannot say thank you enough to Gwen, who has mentored me, showed me what passion and dedication look like and who, as a boss, has always encouraged and supported everything I have done. As a matter of fact, all of the staff at the SWCD have been that way.  They are all unique and have taught me something and made me laugh along the way. I will definitely miss them!  They have also done a great job putting up with me, my chattiness, my sarcasm and my slight attention issues! :) 
Ohio has some great educators, formal and informal.  People that are passionate and believe in what they do. And that's awesome.  Thanks to all of the teachers that welcomed me into the classroom and even invited me back!  It's been fun to get to know you all.  I'll miss the random comments and crazy schedules from the classrooms!  And to everyone that collaborated with me, that are doing the important job of introducing children to the natural world so that they can appreciate and conserve it in the future, thank you for letting me into the fold.  I have had a blast working with you all! 
With that, I'll leave you with some of my favorite memories and people from my five years here at the District.  It's not good-bye, it's see you later!  See you at the Parks!
