Colleagues AND Friends

I am a very lucky teacher.  And I work with some of the best colleagues in the world.  Not only that, they are also my friends.  That is a rare combination nowadays.

Not only do we share the ups and downs of our jobs, we also spend time together outside of school hours.  We walk every Tuesday afternoon without fail.  And on Thursday afternoons you can find most of us laying on our yoga mats in my classroom.

This weekend, our Tuesday walking group was invited up to Anderson Lake to celebrate a retirement and a birthday.  It was a time for toasts and telling stories from rewarding careers; food and boat rides; wine and laughter.

I am one lucky teacher to call these women my friends.
