I am an elementary school librarian who, in my early forties, decided to leave the business suits and pumps of my banking days behind, trading them for teacher clothes and sometimes sensible shoes.
Now, eighteen years into my second career (third if you count SAHM), I work at a K-5 elementary school in central Massachusetts. When not surrounded by a class of children at my feet, I am on my feet—hiking, enjoying nature, baking mini-pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and cheering as a Fenway Faithful for the Boston Red Sox.
Of course the most precious part of my life is my family—two grown children (one of each variety) and my college sweetheart of a husband to whom I’ve been married for 38 years.
