    Sixteen years ago, I came across this site, and I've enjoyed being a part of it every since. I've met some people I really care about, and many people I will always remember (most for good reasons, and some because of outlandish reasons.) I've even become Facebook friends with a few of you over the years.

    I retired from teaching in 2019, and now, it is time for me to move on. Thanks everyone for great memories. I loved reading about the problems and solutions other teachers have, and being able to share experiences.

    If you'd like to keep up with what I'm doing, feel free to read my blog -- janmariet.com

    I wish the best of luck to all of you who are still teaching, and wish you nothing but happiness.

    My first thought was to say "Please don't go!" I'm only not yelling it because you have given us a way to stay connected on our own terms, both yours and anyone who wants to remain in contact. I have found your insight valuable and spot on, so I find you very relevant. Please remember we are still here if you get bored! Best of luck in all that you do, Rain. I will miss your pleasant way of sometimes delivering bad news to participants who expected a path of roses. Oh well - I'm a believer in telling it like it is, not always the storybook ending one is dreaming of. That made you an instant hit with me. I will stay in touch.
