Hi everybody! I have been absent for awhile due to work overwhelming me, but I am out for summer so I am coming back in full force. Smiley I made this the night before my last day of work at Pioneer Elementary. I worked special ed there, but my position is being cut so I am not going back. (Our district is one of the many in the nation under a lot of fire so they cut all people there less than 2 years, all part-time positions, etc. It is awful for a lot of people.)  It was made with the intentions as a gift to the school and the principal for giving me such an awesome opportunity and wonderful experience. I loved that job with a passion, the kids, the staff, my boss-everything. So I wanted a way to thank all of them. I also wanted it to represent me so of course I drew me and my yeti. (They all know me for my yeti, too) Unfortunately, since I started and completed it only a few hours before going to work, I only have this crappy in-progress picture where it is not finished and still unframed. But you get the idea!:)

That is amazing work. And I'm sorry to hear about your job. The same thing happened to me, so I know how many lemons it sucks. But you have the right attitude!

This is really touching and thoughtful of you... I'm sure it meant so much to the kids! It's a wonderful piece and it will definitely bring smiles to their faces. Best of luck to you- everything's going to turn out great.
