As many of you already know I'm retiring from teaching full time this month. Will I miss it? I don't think I"ll miss it until August just a little knowing I won't be part of the staff getting my classroom set up and thinking about each lesson to follow and all the kids. However, I'm so excited for the possibilities ahead, the dream of having time for my photography. I'm looking forward to going to photography classes, seminars and just being a part of something new. This quote was written by a photographer I've learned so much from. I want to create art like he's speaking of that makes others catch their breath when they see it. I love learning new techniques and that is what I intend to do!
