It is hard to believe that as of June I will have been here 5 years. My very first graduating class (pictured here to the right, minus Sally Logan) was taken at the 3rd Annual Women Inspiring Women Conference. These 5 women, for whom I have loving labeled my Feral Cats, have been such an important part of my growth as a teacher, woman, friend and mentor. Week in and week out I had the privilege of watching these women bond, write and grow. They will always remain such an important part of my life. Even though we don’t meet up weekly like we did 4 years ago, I am honored to have been a small part of their lives. I look forward to anytime we all get together.
