Missing Miss Yvette

Lori, Yvette, Me, and Aimee

One of our co-workers made the mistake of calling us "Charlie's Angels" one day. So we thought this was fun!!!

Another school year is coming to an end and I will be losing a wonderful colleague. Yvette Boden is my partner teacher here at Sierra Charter school. Yvette, Aimee, Lori, and I work together in one office. We ARE the Resource room people. I feel like we have become close in the last two years. I know that I have had my share of troubled times and Yvette along with Aimee and Lori, have been a tremendous source of strength and wonderful role models for me. Yvette is a strong outgoing person who when faced with a challenge rises to meet and exceed any and all expectations. She has shown me how to be a better person for myself as well as for those around me.

Yvette, Aimee, Lori, and I have so much fun at work. It really isn't like work at all. We do our jobs and we do a damned good job too! I want to get up in the mornings. I LOVE my job. I LOVE the people I work with. I LOVE what I do! I get paid to do something that I LOVE and have a passion for.

Yvette is moving on. She as decided to take a position in a traditional classroom. I wish her all the best. She will truly be missed! I will miss our talks. I will miss the Kindsay phone calls. I will miss the Kindsay stories. I will miss the "Queen" of the resource room. I just hope that we get a replacement that is AT LEAST half of the person you were! Miss you Yvette! Good Luck! Best Wishes! BE HAPPY!
