“This is our last Weekly Update! I never thought this day would arrive- I guess I thought I would go on working forever. I believed this because I love my job and I love being around our students and all of you. I’ve loved each and every position I’ve held in Raymond- the good days have always far outweighed any “bad days”. I haven’t been able to see all of you these last few days so please accept this as my sincere thanks for all you have done for me. Over the years you have been my mentor, a colleague, an advocate, a coach, my support, and a friend. Thank you- I will miss you all so very much.” ~ Ellen
