Many people don't like heights, but I really do. I've been skydiving once and hope to go at least once more. I also love hiking and reaching the top of whatever peak (or hill) I'm on.
Happy note for early childhood teachers:
Dear Teachers, you are valuable and needed! We appreciate you and your insight, and hope that our work will lead to changes that help you feel better supported and important. Thank you for all you do!
