20+ years of friendship that began under the roof of Wilde Lake High School. There's nothing like working with people you love, and I truly love these women. I wish I knew then how very lucky I was to have landed in the same school as such talented, creative, smart, innovative, supportive, amazing people. I look back so fondly on my early teaching years because of the laughter we shared and the hours upon hours upon hours upon hours we spent together. Though we've all gone in different directions, we're still–and always will be–so very connected, and when we get together, we pick up right where we left off. Love you, ladies! #teacherfriends #friendsforever #wehaventchangedabit #yeswehave #wildlakehighschool #waylatergram
